We are excited to share that Universal Free School Meals have been made permanent in Massachusetts! This means school breakfast and lunch will be at no cost for all students who select a complete meal through the 2023-2024 school year and beyond!
  • Although complete meals will be free for all students, it is beneficial for families who think they would qualify based on income to submit a Free and Reduced Price Meals Application for the 2023-2024 school year to establish eligibility for benefits, like the Affordable Connectivity Program, and discounts to other Cambridge programs.
  • This application will be sent to families in the mail and will be made available on the Food & Nutrition Services webpage and in the CPS Family Portal towards the end of August.
  • Regardless of eligibility status, every student who selects a complete meal, will receive the meal at no cost.
We appreciate your patience awaiting this exciting news! We are grateful to be able to continue to provide nourishing and healthy meals to all of our students at no cost. For more information on school meals, check out the Food & Nutrition Services webpage. Please reach out to our office with any questions or concerns at 617.349.6858.
