Welcome to Sudbury Public Schools’ Breakfast and Lunch Program
Children need healthy meals to learn.
Welcome back students and families! We are excited to update you with the news that Massachusetts students will receive FREE school meals in School Year 2023-2024 and in all future years! Last month, Massachusetts became the 8th state to make Free School Meals for All permanent, which means that breakfast and lunch will continue to be served at no cost to all students for years to come. Second meals, snacks, ice cream, milk that is not a part of a full meal, and/or additional beverages are not covered under the USDA’s Child Nutrition Free School Meals Programs.
To enroll in the free breakfast program, please click HERE.
Each student uses a PIN, keyed in at the cash register, to call up their account. You may choose to fund the account by check payable to Town of Sudbury, cash, or online with credit or debit card. Payment can be made at the register or online at www.myschoolbucks.com. You will need a 10 digit student ID (found in Aspen) to register your child. Registering online with MySchoolBucks allows you to make online payments, track your child's purchases, and establish email alerts for low balances. Click HERE for more information about adding a student to MySchoolBucks.
Please note that even though meals will be free for all, it is very important for eligible families to still complete the Household Application for Free and Reduced Price Meals for the 2023-2024 school year. You can view and complete the application HERE. We strongly encourage all eligible families to submit this form as it allows us to establish eligibility for P-EBT benefits, waive other fees, and serve families most effectively. Please either email a completed form to email@example.com, mail it to SPS Food Services, 40 Fairbank Road, Sudbury, MA 01776, or drop it off at that address. We strongly encourage all eligible families to submit this form as it is very important to the district’s records and allows us to also waive fees for those who qualify.
If you are interested, please consider applying for SNAP, the federal nutrition program that provides eligible residents with monthly financial assistance to purchase groceries. More SNAP information can be found at gettingsnap.org or by calling Project Bread’s FoodSource Hotline at 1-800-645-8333.
It is our privilege to provide breakfast and lunch for your children, supporting them with nourishing and healthy meals to power through the school day! We can’t wait to see them in the coming weeks. Please reach out with any questions or concerns that you may have.
School meals are a healthy option, great value, and are convenient for busy families. Sudbury Public Schools works with Whitsons Culinary Group. Together, we are committed to providing wholesome, high quality menus, prepared fresh daily from locally sourced ingredients whenever available and in season. To us, wholesome foods are much more than just the ingredients found (or not found) within our meals; we also consider the methods used to grow and harvest these foods. As such, we work with our manufacturers and local vendors to offer our customers the most natural, wholesome ingredients possible, all while continuing to be socially responsible. We are working to continually add more organic and non-GMO food items to our offerings. This is all part of our Simply Rooted™ food philosophy and sustainability platform. We promise to bring our customers clean ingredients, wholesome and all-natural meals, all while continuing to nurture the environment.
