Meal Prices



    All students in Elizabeth School District will have access to FREE healthy, nutritious breakfast and lunch beginning in the 2023-24 school year thanks to the Health School Meals for All program approved by Colorado voters.  


    Elizabeth School District Food Service uses a menu planning option called Offer versus Serve at breakfast and/or lunch. Offer versus Serve allows students to select and decline some of the foods offered at each meal. Offer versus Serve helps reduce food waste and allows students to take foods that meet their preferences and hunger levels. At breakfast, students may select from grains, fruit and milk. At lunch, students may select from grains, protein foods, fruits, vegetables and milk. Offer versus Serve requires students to select at least ½ cup of fruits and/or vegetables and at least two other food items or components for their free meal. Students may also select all food items offered for the meal. The meal programs are designed to provide students with well-balanced meals to meet their nutritional needs and fuel their learning. Our program receives federal and state funding for each meal that meets the U.S. Department of Agriculture requirements. This funding helps us provide free meals to all students. When students select less than what is required for the free meal, such as only a carton of milk or an entree, we do not receive funding and must charge an a la carte price to cover the costs. Each cafeteria has signage posted explaining what students may take as part of their free meal. Kitchen staff are also available to assist students with selecting foods. 


    Ala carte:

    Second Breakfast: $2.50

    Second Lunch: $3.50

    Milk: $0.75


    Breakfast: $3.00

    Lunch: $4.00

     (Milk is not included with adult meals)

    Every summer, hundreds of community sites across Colorado offer nutritious meals for no cost to children and teenagers up to age 18 at safe locations.


    You may be eligible for a new program authorized by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) called Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer or P-EBT for short.
