Summer Food Service Program

The Durango School District 9-R Summer Food Service Program will be operating Monday through Thursday, June 5 - July 27, 2023. We will be handing out free sack lunches to any child ages 0-18 at Santa Rita Park.  Any child can receive a lunch, regardless of meal benefit eligibility or school district enrollment. Come visit our table across from the playground anytime from 11a.m. to 1p.m.

How does the Summer Food Service Program Work?

The Summer Food Service Program is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Services. The Colorado Department of Education's Office of School Nutrition approves sponsor applications, conducts training, monitors program operations, and processes program payments.

Who can Participate?

All children 18 years of age and under who go to an approved site may receive free meals.  A person 19 years of age and over who has a mental or physical disability (as determined by a State or local educational agency) and participates during the school year in a public or private non-profit school program may also receive free meals.
