Healthy School Meals for All

All students in District 70 will have access to free, healthy and nutritious school meals beginning in the 2023-24 school year thanks to the Healthy School Meals for All (HSMA) program approved by Colorado voters.


What Families Can Expect for the 2023-24 School Year 
  • We encourage all families to complete the Combination Free/Reduced Lunch Form. This form will be available on Monday, July 17th. To access this form, you must log into MySchoolApps.com or pick up a form from your student's school and return it as soon as possible.
    • Completion of this form will help with additional education funding for schools and may allow for waivers of school-related fees.
    • All household income information provided through the HSMA Combination Form is strictly confidential and protected by law. Please note: Only one form is required for all students in the household. 
  • Students receiving a free meal must take a 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetable with their meal in order to qualify as Free.  Failure to do so will force us to charge the individual food items to the student's account rather than granting a free reimbursable meal.
  • In an effort to accommodate the number of meals being served and speed up our service lines, we'll be offering a variety of packaged fresh fruits and vegetables from a local Pueblo distributor throughout the week.  We'll also offer a rotation of fruit cups, slushies, and sorbets.
  • Additional meals, entrees or a la carte items may be purchased by a student using cash or their MySchoolBucks account.  We won't be able to allow negative charge balances while we're utilizing the Healthy School Meals for All program.

Please contact Lennea McMahan at 719-295-6535 or lmcmahan@district70.org with questions about applications.
