From the Student Nutrition Department:

Good news! Starting immediately, the state of Colorado has decided that ALL students are now eligible for free breakfast and lunch at school through the end of the calendar year due to Covid -19 hardships. This means that USDA approved meals will be available to any student at NO cost regardless of eligibility status.
The cafeteria will still have extra Alacarte items for sale at the posted prices so If your student would like to buy these items they need to have cash or a positive balance in their accounts.
This is a temporary measure to provide a little relief through the holidays. It is expected that we will revert back to our usual price structure in January. If your financial circumstance changes between now and the end of the year, please consider applying for free meal benefits for the spring semester.  Students who owe money for past purchases are still responsible to pay that off. The Student Nutrition Department runs as a non-profit entity and depends on payment for meals and services rendered.
