Free & Reduced Meals

  • The National School Lunch Program provides free and reduced-price meals to students who meet eligibility guidelines. Families who wish to apply for a free or reduced-price meal must complete a new application every school year. For the first 30 school days of the school year, Cherry Creek students will keep the same paid, free, or reduced-price meal status as the previous school year. Applications will be processed within ten school days.


    The student's parent or guardian must obtain a copy of the Letter of Eligibility. To request a replacement copy of the Letter of Eligibility, the parent or guardian may contact the Food and Nutrition Services office at 720-886-7172.

    The online meal application will be available in English, Spanish, Burmese, Chinese, French, Korean, Russian, and Vietnamese starting July 1, 2022, for the 2022-2023 school year.
