Meal Compensation

Are you eligible for the SNAP program? Does your student qualify for free or reduced price school meals? Or have you become eligible for these programs due to loss of income from the COVID-19 pandemic?

If so, you will be compensated for the cost of meals your student missed at school during March, April, May and June. If you were already signed up for SNAP or for free and reduced school meals, you will receive this compensation automatically.

If you became eligible during the pandemic, please fill out an application for free or reduced meals to receive this compensation.

Ways to apply:

  • Online Application
  • Pick up an application at one of our school meal sites from 9-11 a.m. daily at Ventura Park, Gilbert Heights, David Douglas High School South Building or Ron Russell Middle School.
  • Visit the DDSD Nutrition Services webpage to print a paper copy
