Lunch prices for 2022-23 will be as follows:
▪️ Elementary lunches: $2.60
▪️ Middle School lunches: $2.75
▪️ High School lunches: $3

Meal Benefits applications are very important so that students can qualify to receive subsidized meals. If you have questions, please email foodservices@dpsk12.org. Thank you!
