2014 Summer Food Service Program

Children do not have to be registered Jeffco Public School students. There is no service at any location on Friday, July 4 in observance of the Fourth of July holiday. The program, which is paid for by federal funding, helps provide students with the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow during the summer when school is out of session.

Providing Healthy Meals at Schools

The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 brought new regulations to the National School Lunch Program aimed at helping to decrease the incidence of Childhood Obesity in our country.  As a result of these changes students will be offered meals that offer:       
•    More fruits and vegetables
•    Meals with fewer calories, less fat and less sodium
•    Leaner proteins, with more meat-free alternatives
•    Right-sized portions of more satisfying foods
•    More whole-grain options

This PowerPoint describes the changes that students will see in the school lunch line.


MyPaymentsPlus is an online payment system that allows parents to pay for their student's meals online 24-hours a day using a bank account or Visa or Mastercard credit cards. This system simplifies bookkeeping and helps to ensure your child always has lunch money. Access MyPaymentsPlus.
