Colebrook Consolidated School

Welcome to EdAdvance Food Service Program at Colebrook School

 

Greetings Families! 

EdAdvance Food Service and Colebrook School welcome you to the 2022-2023 School year. EdAdvance will be sponsoring the Food Service in Colebrook this year. What does this mean to you and your child(ren)? First, no staffing change has occurred so your children will not notice any change. We will continue to follow the National School Lunch Program and will be providing meals that are balanced and nutritious. 

One area of change will be the addition of Breakfast, served in a grab and go style when students arrive at school. We will also offer snacks for sale at that time as well.

More information about parent payment system will be coming shortly. 

Important Information regarding School Meals for Students 2022–2023

  • All meals at no cost for all children due to temporary federal assistance.  

  • Complete a Free & Reduced Meal Application if you believe you qualify. 

Why are all student meals temporarily at no cost?

During school year 2022-23, the school district has opted into the School Meals Assistance Revenue for Transition (SMART) funds providing meals (first breakfast and first lunch) at no cost for all students at the beginning of the school year. Please note that meals at no cost to all students will be temporary and is unlikely to last all year and is subject to the availability of  SMART funds. We will notify families at least one month in advance of a change over to paid meals. 

Questions related to School Meals may be directed to Becky Tyrrell, Food Service Director at EdAdvance at Tyrrell@EdAdvance.org or 860-567-0863 ext 1148
