Litchfield Public Schools
Welcome to EdAdvance Food Service Program
EdAdvance Food Service and Litchfield Public Schools School welcome you to the 2022-2023 School year. EdAdvance will be sponsoring the Food Service in Litchfield Schools this year. While a few staffing changes have occurred, our goal is to have a seamless transition. We will continue to follow the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program and will be providing meals that are balanced and nutritious. Every meal includes a variety of fruits and vegetables as well as a choice of low fat or non-fat milk.

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.
