An application for free or reduced price meals is available through the Food Service Department or your child's school office. To be receiving free or reduced price meals for your child, you must complete an application and return it to the school. All applications must be completely filled out or they cannot be processed. Please contact the Food Service Office at (781) 297-1051 if you have any questions about this program.
If you now get Food Stamps or AFDC, your child can get free meals. If your child has received a Meal Benefit Certificate from the Department of Transitional Assistance, you do not have to complete the application. Just sign the certificate and return it to your child's school. Your child will receive a free lunch.
You may also be eligibile to receive additional assistance through the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Nutrition Program for your family's nutritional needs.

It is important to note that if you are over income for WIC, you may be still be eligible if you are currently receiving TAFDC, SNAP, MassHealth, or have foster children under age 5.
