About the DPS Lunch Program
Students can either bring lunch from home or buy lunch. Lunch includes an entrée, one carton of milk, and a hand fruit. Additional drinks and snacks can also be purchased a la carte. There are numerous snack and drink options daily also.

You may fund lunch accounts by sending cash or a check to school with your student (made payable to the “Darien School Lunch program”). Students can hand funds to any lunch cashier. Please include your student's ID on checks and correspondence. You can also add money online via the MySchoolBucks online payment system. Please see the "Paying For Lunch" tab for more information.
