Free and Reduced-Price School Meal Eligibility

Adams County School District 14 students are allowed one free breakfast and one free lunch per day. If a student wishes to purchase more food beyond the free meal, they will be charged an a la carte price. To purchase, students must have money with them or funds available in the student’s lunch account. Students are not allowed to charge for any additional meals or a la carte items. The a la carte pricing also applies to adults purchasing food/beverage beyond the adult lunch meal price. All pricing aligns with the Colorado Department of Education and the United States Department of Agriculture procedures and regulations, and are approved by the Adams County School District 14 Board of Education.
