Children need nutritious food to learn. The Boulder Valley School District offers nutritious meals every school day. Your children may qualify to receive free or reduced price meals. In many cases, eligibility for these federal school meal funds and programs is tied to the number of students who qualify for meal benefits.
Free or Reduced-Price Meal Applications - now known as Meal Benefits Applications - are available online. We will not be sending paper applications to schools. You can complete the application from your Infinite Campus Student/Parent Portal (go to www.bvsd.org and click on "Infinite Campus Student/Parent Portal"). Once you are logged into your portal account, please select the "Applications/Forms" on the left side to begin the application process. Once you have entered the required information, you may click "Submit" and your application will be submitted pending approval.
PLEASE NOTE that a portal account must be created if you do not already have one. To request an account, go to www.bvsd.org, click on "Infinite Campus Student/Parent Portal", click "Help", then click on the link that says "If you do not have an Activation Key, click here".
If you continue to have problems accessing an Activation Key for your student(s), please contact the registrar at your student(s) school.

If you were approved for 2018-19 free & reduced-price meal benefits, they will carry over for a 30-day grace period. If we do not receive a new application by the end of the grace period, your child(ren)’s benefits will be canceled. Please keep in mind: It can take up to 10 days to process a new application.
If you have general Free/Reduced-Price Meal questions, please email Lola in the Food Services Office at email@example.com.
You can fill the application out online at home, or come to the Food Services Office for help. We're located in the BVSD Education Center at 6500 E. Arapahoe Road, Boulder, CO 80303. We are open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
