School Menus

Welcome to the EdAdvance Food Service Program 

Starting the 2023/2024 School Year, per USDA and State requirements meals will be returning to the tiered system of

Paid and Free. Students who qualify for free or reduced meals will receive free lunch,

and ALL STUDENTS will receive one free breakfast meal.

Those students who are directly certified for Free or Reduced Meals will receive letters from EdAdvance to verify their status. We encourage anyone not directly certified who believes they may qualify for free meals to complete an application.  Applications can be found on the Food Service webpage below or if you would like a paper copy of the application, call us at the number below.  

School Meal Prices


1st Breakfast Meal for All            $0.00

2nd Breakfast Meal for All          $2.00

Meal Payment System: Parents may send in funds to the cafeteria or go  to sign up and add funds to your child’s account. After signing up you will have the opportunity to use your credit card to deposit money into your student(s) account.  A fee is associated with this service through EZ School Apps. You can also track your student’s payments and purchases and receive notifications when your student’s account balance is low.

What should I do if I receive a Direct Certification Letter? 

Children receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Family Assistance (TFA) or Medicaid (HUSKY A) benefits may be directly certified and automatically eligible for free or reduced meals without completing an application.  If you have received a NOTICE OF DIRECT CERTIFICATION for free or reduced-price meals, do not complete the application unless instructed to do so by the district. Let the school know if any children in your household are not listed on the Notice of Direct Certification letter you received, since free or reduced meal benefits are extended to all children in a household when directly certified. 

Questions regarding SNAP/TFA/Medicaid and direct certification should be sent to the determining official, 

Wendy Brown at or call 860-567-0863 x 1307. 

Why complete an application?

Please complete a Free & Reduced Meal Application if you believe you qualify.

Students who qualify for Free & Reduced Meals may be eligible for other benefits throughout the school year unrelated to food service. Free & Reduced Meal Applications can be found on the district website under Food Services or on the following link :
