Updated Breakfast & Lunch Program

Earlier this year, Governor Ned Lamont and Education Commissioner Charlene M. Russell-Tucker announced plans to expand Connecticut’s free school meals program for the 2023-2024 school year, enabling more students to receive access to nutritious breakfast and lunch at no additional cost to them or their families.

  • All students will be able to receive one complete breakfast meal at no cost.
  • Students who are eligible for reduced-price meals will be able to receive one complete lunch at no cost,

All free meals must be complete meals. Al La Carte items and additional snacks are available for purchase. Students who would like to purchase additional snacks and beverages may pay cash or charge through their student meal account.

A La Carte items vary in price between $0.50 and $3.00, and offerings vary by school/grade level. For more details regarding offerings and prices, please click here.
