Breakfast and lunch now available to
Meriden Public Schools students at no charge!


Starting the first day of school, all Meriden Public Schools students
(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.


The district does not have a charge option as all meals are now free.  Cash or account debit  payment for any additional items, such as snacks, beverages or milk (if not "purchased" as part of a meal), will be required at the cash register.

The Food and Nutrition Services Program provides breakfasts and lunches in all Meriden Public Schools and Thomas Edison Middle School to all students (K-12) at no charge. 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.
