Jeffco Food and Nutrition Services believes that access to healthy meals is essential to student success, and some students may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Jeffco utilizes SchoolCafé for online applications, which are the fastest and easiest way to be approved for meal benefits, but feel free to contact FNS or your school if you would prefer a paper application.
Prior to submitting an application, please review the Annual Family Letters below. Online applications for free or reduced-priced meals will be submitted through SchoolCafé.com. Returning users can log in to submit their application for 2019-20 on or after July 1st. First-time users of SchoolCafé will need to create an account. Instructions for creating an account and completing an application are available below.
Remember, families must reapply for free or reduced-price meals every year on or after July 1.
