Sign Up for Breakfast & Lunch at School

In 2021–22, all students can receive free breakfast and lunch at school, regardless of family income.

While breakfast has always been free, no-cost lunch is part of the National School Lunch Program and the Seamless Summer Option, which the USDA has modified in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sign-up is required for students to receive meals at school. Sign up for free breakfast and lunch here.

Top Spanish, a local caterer, provides our school meals. See menus from last year.

Join us on Tuesday, August 24, at 6:00 p.m. for an online town hall about health and safety at Creative Minds.
