D38 has provided free meals to all (online and in-person) students, regardless of eligibility, since Monday, September 21, 2020. The USDA is financing these free meals with Congressionally appropriated funding. The USDA now anticipates this funding will last through June 2021.
Starting January 6, 2021 free meals will be distributed between 11:00-11:30 (or until we run out of meals), Monday-Friday, at Lewis-Palmer High School. Access this drive-through service via the north side of the building, across from practice fields. Enter off of Jackson Creek Parkway
A free meal must meet the component requirements set forth by CDE which includes meat/meat alternate, grains, vegetables, fruits, and fluid milk (one of the components must be fruits and/or vegetables).
