EASTCONN Food Services manages our breakfast and lunch programs. Breakfast is offered free of charge to all students. Students who qualify for free or reduced-priced meals will receive one lunch daily free of charge. The fee for lunch is $3.50 and the fee for milk is $.60. Milk is provided as part of a full meal for students who receive a free or purchased lunch. If students are not taking a full meal, they must pay $.60 for milk even if they qualify for a free meal. Students may not take a la carte items such as milk unless they have funds in their account to cover the purchase.
NATIONAL SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM
EASTCONN participates in the National School Lunch Program, sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture, which permits the school system to offer free and reduced price meals to students who qualify. EASTCONN encourages all families who may have a child who is eligible for free or reduced price lunch to apply. Families may apply at any time during the summer or school year and may file a new application if there is a change in household income or the number of members of a family’s household. Applicants are responsible to pay for meals until the application for free and reduced price lunch is completed and approved. All applications for free and reduced price lunch and any related information will be considered strictly confidential and will not be shared outside the Program. Policy Applicable to Non-Payment of Lunch Fees: No student will ever be denied a lunch. No alternative meal consisting of unflavored milk, a piece of fruit and sun butter sandwich will be given as a "consequence" of parent not paying for lunch.
