School Lunches are Free for 2022-2023
Universal Free School Meals has been extended in Massachusetts for the 2022-2023 school year! This means that breakfast and lunch will continue to be served at no cost to all students. Please note that even though meals will be free for all students, it is very important for families to still complete the household Application for Free and Reduced Price Meals for the 2022-2023 school year.
