Healthy School Meals
The Worcester Public Schools will be participating in the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program Seamless Summer Option. As part of this program, all schools in the district or those under the sponsorship of the Worcester Public Schools will offer healthy meals every school day at NO COST due to the Nationwide Waiver to Allow the Seamless Summer Option through School Year 2021-2022. Students will be able to participate in these programs without having to pay a fee or submit a household application.
Additionally, children through the age of 18 participating in educational or enrichment activities in an organized, structured, and supervised environment after the end of the school day during the school year are eligible to receive a snack or meal through the At-Risk Afterschool Meals component of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). All snacks and meals will be provided at NO COST to the students.
