NEW FOR THIS YEAR (SCHOOL LUNCHES)
With the expiration of COVID-19 waivers put in place by USDA, DCPS Food & Nutrition Services must resume charging for meals at schools that are not certified for the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) starting in school year 22/23. Breakfast remains free to students at all DCPS schools; the lunch price is $3.00 at non-CEP schools. All meals are served at no charge to students at CEP schools.
For students who do not attend a CEP School, to determine eligibility for free or reduced-price lunches this school year, please go to http://dcps.dc.gov/farm to complete the Free and Reduced Meal (FARM) application.
If your student does not qualify for free lunch, you can add funds to your students’ meal account, please visit www.myschoolbucks.com. You will need your child’s student ID number, as well as the student’s date of birth. Please call the Murch Welcome Center at 202-282-0130 if you need your child’s student ID number.
It takes 5 business days for money to show up in your child’s account, so please allow time for this process. If there is trouble with your account during the school year, please contact www.myschoolbucks.com at 1-855-832-5226.
