Free & Reduced Meal Program

  • Important Announcement:  2023-2024 Meal Application is now open!

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    The Free & Reduced Meal Program for the 2023-2024 academic year is now open for meal applications. Please note that the USDA will not be providing free meals this year.  Hence, we encourage all eligible families to complete the meal application in the Parent Portal promptly.
    It is vital to remember that a meal application must be submitted each school year to determine your child's eligibility for free or reduced meals.  If your child does not qualify for the program, regular charges will apply for their meals.
    If you require any assistance or have any questions regarding the application process, please do not hesitate to contact our dedicated support team at 973-470-2275.  We are here to help you throughout the process.
    Thank you for your attention to this matter.  Your participation in the Free & Reduced Meal Program helps us support the nutritional needs of all students.

    If your household budget is tight, there is help in paying for school meals. Children are eligible to receive free or reduced priced meals if their household's gross income falls within the limits on the Free & Reduced Meal application. Parents can complete and submit the application online at the app Parent Portal. New applications need to be filled out each school year.
