Free Meals at TLC

en español, português, 中文

October 21, 2021: This fall, TLC submitted an application with the Massachusetts Department of Nutrition for free meals (breakfast and lunch) for all TLC students. We were approved! This means starting effective immediately, all students can receive free meals for the rest of this school year, regardless of which program they are in. For parents/guardians who paid for meals this school year, we will be reimbursing families the cost they paid for meals. If you have any questions, please reach out to me at
