Welcome to Sudbury Public Schools’ Breakfast and Lunch Program
Sudbury Public Schools are providing free meals for all students under the USDA’s Child Nutrition Programs. All children enrolled in the district are eligible for these free meals regardless of eligibility through June 30, 2023.
Even though meals are free, second meals, snacks, ice cream, and/or additional beverages are not covered under the USDA’s Child Nutrition Programs. Meals are recorded in a point of sales system. Each student uses a PIN, keyed in at the cash register, to call up their account. You may choose to pay 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 (you can find that number in Aspen) to register your child on MySchoolBucks. Registering online with MySchoolBucks allows you to make online payments, track your child's purchases, and establish email alerts for low balances.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has decided to extend free school meals for all students through the 2022-2023 school year! This means that breakfast and lunch will continue to be served at no cost to all students.
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 2022-2023 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 benefits, and serve families most effectively. Please either email a completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org, mail it to SPS Food Services, 40 Fairbank Road, Sudbury, MA 01776, or drop it off at that address. We strongly encourage ALL 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.
Please sign up HERE for the free breakfast program.
In addition, 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 Food Source Hotline at 1-800-645-8333.

As you may know, when students participate, our district receives federal dollars to invest back into meal programs, sustaining us for years to come. It’s easier than ever this year to eat at school, as meals continue to be free for all students.
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.

Balance, Refunds, Account Issues
Massachusetts households have been receiving temporary extra COVID SNAP benefits during the COVID-19 public health emergency. However, recent action by Congress ends the extra COVID SNAP benefits as of February 2023. This means that households will receive their last increased payment on March 2, 2023.
The extra COVID SNAP benefits, also known as SNAP Emergency Allotments, are the difference between a SNAP recipient’s normal benefit amount and the maximum amount for their household size. SNAP recipients are no longer getting the maximum benefit amount. Starting in April, households will get only one SNAP payment, their normal monthly benefit. As a result, many households will see a sharp decrease in their monthly funds for food.
Please visit the SNAP update blog on GettingSNAP.org that breaks down these changes to SNAP recipients and how Project Bread can help.
