Dear CPS Community:

We are excited to share that school meals will be at no cost for all students through the 2022-2023 school year! A complete breakfast and a complete lunch will continue to be served at no cost to all students.

A meal is considered a no cost complete meal when at least three (3) meal components identified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) (Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, Meat/Meat Alternative, and Milk) have been selected, and at least one of them is a fruit or vegetable. Kitchen staff will help students select complete meals as they go through the serving line. Students will be charged for anything that does not meet the requirements of a complete meal.


  • Please note that even though complete meals will be at no cost for all students, it is beneficial for families to complete the household Application for Free and Reduced Price Meals for the 2022-2023 school year.
  • The application will be sent to families in the mail and be made available on the website and in the Family Portal towards the end of August.
  • We recommend families who feel they would qualify based on income to submit an application, as it allows us to establish eligibility for P-EBT benefits and serve families most effectively. Regardless of application status, if your student selects a complete meal, it will be at no cost.

We appreciate your patience awaiting this news! We are grateful to be able to provide nourishing and healthy meals to our students. For more information on no cost complete meals, check out the Food & Nutrition Services webpage. Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns at 617.349.6858.
