Meal Programs

During the 2021-2022 school year, ALL STUDENTS in the Dubuque Community School District will again receive NO-COST meals at school!

No-cost meals are provided thanks to an extension of the USDA Seamless Summer Option that school districts are able to participate in through the school year.

NOTE: This program DOES NOT cover milk-only purchases at all levels, or the purchase of additional meals and a la carte items at the middle- and high-school levels.

Meal program forms still need to be completed!

Even with no-cost meals being provided to students, it is important that families still complete the appropriate meal program application.

These forms are used to determine eligibility for the P-EBT (Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer) program, fee waiver benefits and helps the district receive certain federal funding.

Families wishing to determine P-EBT eligibility or to apply for a fee waiver must complete the appropriate form below:

What: FREE AND REDUCED-PRICE MEALS APPLICATION and Fee Waiver Eligibility COMMUNITY ELIGIBILITY PROVISION (CEP) FORM and Fee Waiver Eligibility
Who: Families with a student attending Bryant, Carver, Eisenhower, Hempstead, Irving, Kennedy, Roosevelt, Sageville, Senior, or Table Mound. Families with a student attending Alta Vista Campus, Audubon, Fulton, Hoover, Jefferson, Lincoln, Marshall, Prescott, and Washington.
