Montclair Public Schools participates in the USDA Child Nutrition Program. 

We are pleased to inform you that the Montclair Board of Education will be participating in the National School Lunch Program's Seamless Summer Option to provide free meals for all students during the 2021-2022 school year. 

All students will be able to receive free breakfast and lunch at no charge.

Even though the district is providing free meals to all students throughout the 2021-2022 academic school year, the Application for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals is still available and is used to determine eligibility for P-EBT benefits, State, and Federal funding.

We encourage you to complete the Free/Reduced Meal Application to see if you qualify for additional benefits. 

A free/reduced lunch application must be completed each year in order for a student to continue receiving free/reduced benefits. 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 status 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.

Food Service Information for the 2021-2022 School Year

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.
