    We have exciting news about universal free school meals. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has decided to extend free school meals for all students through the 2022-2023 school year! This means we will be offering all students one free breakfast and one free lunch each full school day! 

    What this means for your family and for Ashland Nutrition Services:

    -  All students can receive a healthy breakfast and lunch every school day, at no cost to you. USDA is funding this program so every child can have one breakfast and one lunch each school day these meals are served, free of charge.

    -  When students arrive at school they should go directly to the cafeteria to get breakfast. This is the most important meal of the day!

    -  No pre-ordering is needed!  Just come down to the cafeteria and EAT RIGHT HERE at school. 

    -  This program allows Ashland Nutrition Services to provide the most nourishing and appetizing meals possible for your children. When your children eat school meals, it helps Ashland Nutrition Services by providing us with federal funds. The more meals we serve, the more funding we receive, allowing us to focus on quality and variety.  If your children have never before participated in school meals, consider trying the program this year!

    It helps you save time and money. By allowing us to prepare meals for your children you don’t have to plan and shop for your children’s breakfast and lunch each school day.

    Even though the USDA has extended free meals for all students for the entire school year, families should still submit a household application to determine eligibility for free and reduced-price school meals if they have not received a letter from us stating that they have been directly certified for benefits. This will allow students to qualify for any additional benefits.  Visit the Free and Reduced webpage to download the application.

    Please reach out with any questions you might have. Your children are the reason we do our jobs and we are here to make sure that they are fueled with good food!
