Meriden Public Schools students at no charge!

(Kindergarten through Grade 12) are eligible for nutritious
breakfasts and lunches at NO CHARGE!


Free and reduced price meal benefit applications no longer need to be filled out annually.

Food and Nutrition Services ensures that all meals served meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans as well as providing students and the school community with nutrition education and information. The Food and Nutrition Services Program works closely with the City of Meriden’s Health Department to ensure that healthy meals are being served in a safe cafeteria environment for the students of Meriden.
