Back to School—Fall 2023

Permanent Free School Meals for All


Welcome Back Students!

Dear Parents and Caregivers,  

Welcome back students and families! We are excited to update you with the news that Massachusetts students will receive FREE school meals in School Year 2023-2024 and in all future years! Last month, Massachusetts became the 8th state to make Free School Meals for All permanent which means that breakfast and lunch will continue to be served at no cost to all students for years to come.

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 2023-2024 school year. You can view and complete the application here: . We strongly encourage ALL families to submit this form as it allows us to waive Bus Fees, Testing and Athletic fees for those who qualify and serve families most effectively.  Completing this form also helps our district to receive more federal funding to keep our Nutrition Program strong.

If you are interested, please consider applying for SNAP, the federal nutrition program that provides eligible residents with monthly financial assistance to purchase groceries. More SNAP information can be found at or by calling Project Bread’s FoodSource Hotline at 1-800-645-8333. 

It is our privilege to provide breakfast and lunch to your children, supporting them with nourishing and healthy meals to power through the school day! We can’t wait to see them in the coming weeks. Please reach out with any questions or concerns that you may have.

Our mission continues… to serve our students nutritious and tasty meals ! We prepare our back to school meals to be a wonderful safe experience for all or our students. Click here for breakfast and lunch services by school as well as other important information.  All breakfast and lunch meals are FREE!  Students can enjoy amazing nutritious and tasty meals at school, for added nutrition each day to prepare them for a great day of learning!  If any questions, please email or call us.
