Free & Reduced Meals


School meals will be available to students at no charge this year, regardless of household income. However, we ask that families still complete a Meal Benefit Application as this provides data for key funding for academic resources and may also connect your family to additional benefits. To apply, complete the SY 2023 Household Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals listed below and return to: School Nutrition Office, 20 Quentin Drive, Scarborough, ME 04074, Attention:  Brenda Franklin.  If you prefer, you may complete the application online at A new application must be submitted each school year.

Our school offers healthy meals every school day. Meals meet nutrition standards established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. If a child has a disability, as determined by a licensed medical authority, and the disability prevents the child from eating the regular school meal, substitutions may be made as prescribed by a licensed medical authority. If a substitution is needed, there will be no extra charge for the meal. Please note, however, that the school is not required to make a substitution, unless it meets the definition of disability and supported by a complete medical statement form signed by the local medical authority.
