Free & Reduced Meals Information

Applications for free and reduced price meals need to be submitted every year.  I encourage all families to apply, even if you have been denied in the past, as income guidelines change every year. Student eligibility status from the prior school year will carry over until 9/29/18.  After that date, all students without an approved application will be charged full price for meals. Morning snack milk (where available) is NOT included in the free or reduced price meal program and costs all students $0.40.  Please also fill out the disclosure form by following the link below and return to school with the application if you would like to be considered for other reduced price school fees.


Free Summer Meals Available to Children in Low-Income Communities

Summer is fast approaching and a lot of families in low-income areas still don't know about the free, nutritious summer meals available to their children 18 years old and younger. Help us spread the word about summer meals so that no child goes hungry this summer when school is out.

Organizations and local governments across the country serve free summer meals through the USDA Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) at sites like parks, recreation centers, schools, places of worship, summer camps, libraries, and mobile buses in low-income communities. Tell families you work with how to find sites in their community that serve free summer meals by telling them to:

- Call the National Hunger Hotline at 1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1-877-8-HAMBRE (for Spanish-speaking families).  A live operator will tell them where the nearest sites are in their community.

- Visit www.whyhunger.org/findfood.  Families can type in their address and then an online map will show them where the nearest summer meals sites are in their community.  

For more information on SFSP, please visit: http://www.fns.usda.gov/sfsp/summer-food-service-program-sfsp 


 

If you have other questions or need help, please call (413) 323-0442.

Sincerely,

Kelly Slattery, Food Service Director
