Earlier this month, Governor Lamont signed House Bill (HB) 6671 into effect, which allows an additional $60 million of federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to be allocated to the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) for the Free School Meals for Children grant. Beginning Wednesday March 1, 2023, the additional funding will allow FPS to offer one school breakfast meal and one school lunch meal per school day at no cost to students for the remainder of school year (SY) 2022-23.

All free meals must be complete meals. Al La Carte items and additional snacks are available for purchase. Students who would like to purchase additional snacks and beverages may pay cash or charge through their student meal account.


If your child would like to purchase a second meal, please see the list of prices below:
