We are excited to have Preferred Meals as our food service provider. They are supplying Desert Trails Preparatory Academy with our breakfast and lunch.  To find out what delicious food will be offered this week, please follow the link below to their menu.  This link will also provide you with the nutrients and allergy for each day.

Please contact the office or go further down this page to complete a lunch application (one per household). You may also pre-pay your child’s account in the office (cash only).  A notice will be sent home with your child as a reminder to reload their account when needed.



To help ensure that each child is provided with the proper food services we encourage each household to complete an application.  Once received, it takes 1-2 weeks to process and a letter will be sent home with a scholar.  Applications are sent home with scholars on the first day of school or provided with the enrollment packet for scholars that begin mid-year.  You may download the application by following the link below or come into the office for one.


Safety is a top priority at Desert Trails Preparatory Academy.  If your child has any known food allergies please complete the attached Food Medical Form or come to the office to pick one up.  Your child’s doctor will need to complete it, they will give it back to you, to turn into the office.

It is very important to us that every scholar learns how to live a healthy lifestyle.  Making good choices about their physical activity and the food they eat will help them to lead long and healthy lives.  DTPA has a Wellness Policy that goes into detail about the steps we take to help support scholars.
