Great news! Derby Public Schools is excited to share that free meals will continue this summer and during the 2021-2022 school year. 

• Summer meals will be offered June 1-July 30 at three locations. View details/times/locations HERE.

• USDA announced that each student will be offered one free breakfast and one free lunch during the 2021-2022 school year. We are happy to be able to offer this to our families for the second year in a row!

• Summer P-EBT Assistance Available for Qualifying FamiliesSummer Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) will be based on school meal program eligibility during the 2020-2021 school year. While all students received free meals this school year, you must complete a free/reduced meal application for meal benefits in order to qualify for P-EBT. This new program provides nutritional resources to families who have lost access to free or reduced-price meals due to school or child care closures.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has allowed several flexibilities through the end of the 2020-2021 school year. These flexibilities allow Derby Public Schools to serve free meals to all enrolled students through the end of the school year as funding allows. This means until this funding is not available, all enrolled students do not need to add funds to their meal account for breakfast or lunch (unless at the secondary level and purchasing a second meal.) If you already have funds added, these will be carried over to the next school year or you may request a refund by emailing your building secretary. If USDA funding runs out prior to end of the year, families would receive a follow-up notification.
Curbside meal pick-up will also be available for students who are enrolled in Derby Public Schools and are learning from home whether they are remote learners, quarantined or are remote due to their school being in hybrid mode at any point. The menu served to remote learners will be the same as the menu served inside the building and is subject to change without notice.
Note: If you may qualify for free/reduced meals, please continue to submit an application so we have this in place whenever this funding runs out. Your meal application may also help you qualify for reduced enrollment fees or WiFi hotspot support for remote learning needs.
The remote learner meal order form and pick-up times can be viewed HERE. Please email the Food Service Office with any questions, mlawson@usd260.com.
