Meals are FREE!
We are so excited that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has decided to extend free school meals for all students through the 2022-2023 school year! This means that breakfast and lunch will continue to be served at no cost to all students.

New Meal Prices

While meals will continue to be free for the upcoming school year, (students are allowed one (1) free breakfast and one (1) free lunch per day) our program is not alone in experiencing challenges with rising food costs and supply chain issues.  In order to keep our program sustainable, we have increased our meal prices for the 2022 – 2023 school year.   This increase will only apply if a student purchases additional meals.

Breakfast: $1.50         Lunch: $3.25


Free and Reduced Meals

Please note that even though meals will be free for all, it is very important for families to still complete the household Application for Free and Reduced Price Meals for the 2022-2023 school year. We strongly encourage ALL families to submit this form as it allows us to establish eligibility for P-EBT benefits, provide fee waivers and serve families most effectively and provide information that could help the free meal program continue in the future.  Information provided on the application is confidential. Families will be notified of status after review of application.  Completed applications should be submitted to the address below:
