Enjoy your summer! We'll be posting a link to apply for Free or Reduced meals some time in late August 2018. 

Take care!

 

WHAT MAKES A REIMBURSABLE LUNCH?

Five essential components must be offered every day: fruit, vegetables, grains, meat/meat alternatives and milk. Students must take 3 out of the 5 to make it count as a reimbursable meal, one of which has to be a fruit or vegetable. If a student arrives at the register with less than 3 items, they may opt to return to serving area for additional items until the requirements are met. Otherwise, items selected will be charged a la carte. This applies to free, reduced and full pay students. In order for free, reduced or paid meals to be eligible for reimbursement, a full meal must be taken. These guidelines are set forth by the USDA and are not adjustable by Belmont Public Schools. More information on Offer vs. Serve is available here. Belmont School's Offer vs. Serve Policy is posted to the right. 


BPS Food Services is proud to announce it’s joining forces with Walden Local Meats based in Burlington, MA. The goal is to feature LOCAL, 100% grass-fed beef and pork items monthly on our lunch menus. All products are sourced within 250 miles. Help us support LOCAL farms and look out for items on the February menus at both the Chenery Middle School and High School. This is what Farm to Table is all about. Here’s a reminder of some of our LOCAL vendors: Iggy’s Bread, Sal’s Pizza and Fantini Bakery. Learn more about Walden Local Meats here.

Available as of July 6th, 2017, Submit Your 2017-18 Free and Reduced Meal Application Online. Click here or the picture below!
