Food Service Information for
School Year 2020-2021

MPS participating in the USDA Child Nutrition Program offering free school meals to students through December 2020.

The Montclair Public Schools participates in the National School Lunch Program. We provide the five components of a complete lunch as required by the USDA. These components are meat/protein alternative, bread/grain, vegetable, fruit and milk. To obtain a full, reduced or free lunch at the listed price, the lunch must include at least three of the five components. One of the three components taken must be a ½ cup of fruit and/or vegetable to be considered a full lunch. If a complete lunch is not purchased, each item is purchased separately or à la carte.

Free/Reduced Lunch Status

A free/reduced lunch application must be completed each year in order for a student to continue receiving free/reduced meals. Each year’s application is valid only through the beginning of the next school year. If a new application is not completed the student’s status will be changed to full price for meals during the month of October.

Why should I complete the free/reduced lunch application?

If you need assistance with the form, please visit your school's main office. They will be glad to help.
