EFC Free and Reduced Price Food Services

Free and Reduced Price Food Services

The district takes part in the National School Lunch Program and other food programs that may become available to assure that all children in the schools receive proper nourishment.

In accordance with guidelines for participation in these programs, and in accordance with the wishes of the school committee, any child who a teacher believes is improperly nourished will not be denied a lunch or other food simply because proper application has not been received from his/her parents/guardians. As required by state and federal regulations, the school committee approves a policy statement pertaining to eligibility for free milk, free meals, and reduced price meals.
