Eligibility

Due to a 15% increase in food prices and a 50% increase in paper products, it is necessary to raise the cost of school lunch and breakfast. 

School lunch will now be $3.00 for students and $4.00 for adults. Breakfast will be $1.60 and $0.85 for Full Day kinder snack. 

You can read about how supply chain issues are affecting our lunch program.

The Utah state plan has been approved for 2023 Summer Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT).  The P-EBT program is administered through the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) Food and Nutrition Service and State Agencies to supply a one-time benefit amount of $120 per eligible child to buy groceries for students. Benefits will be issued onto an electric benefit card during the Summer of 2023 by the Department of Workforce services.

Households will not receive P-EBT benefits due to school closures, reduced attendance or COVID-related absences during the 2022-2023 school year. There will be one round of reporting in May for all students that have qualified for a Free/Reduced status by May 1st. 2023. To qualify you must be enrolled in a school that participates in the National School Lunch program and have submitted a Free/Reduced Application to the Nutrition Department.

If you have not yet submitted a Free/Reduced Application for SY23, you can do so on the Free and Reduced Lunch tab or fill out a paper copy in the school office.
