How will my children be served school breakfast and lunch?
While many things have changed this school year, our commitment to offering fresh, wholesome meals to students so they are ready to learn has not compromised. Our school nutrition team is hard at work to make meals as seamless and safe as possible for students. Please visit the links below to stay updated on our two meal service options!

How much will school meals cost this school year?
Breakfast and lunch will be FREE for all Cambridge students and any child under the age of 18, until June 30th, 2021.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), which governs the school meals programs, initially offered waivers allowing schools to offer meals at no cost to anyone under 21 back in March. Those waivers are set to expire June 30th, 2021, or until federal funds are exhausted.

*A free meal is complete with at least three food categories identified by the USDA (Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, Meat/Meat Alternative, and Dairy), and two fruits and/or vegetables selected.
**For food allergies, religious dietary restrictions, and limitations on specific foods, please call the Food & Nutrition Services office.

The Food and Nutrition Services Department is located at:
