School Lunch Information

Exciting news to share, free meals for all will resume on March 1st. The Governor has signed the bill into law and we have filled out the paperwork to begin receiving state funding in March to help support families through the rest of the year. This funding is available to help support families who do NOT qualify for free.

We are offering meals at no cost to all through the end of the 2022-2023 school year. 

In accordance with current requirements, families are responsible to continue to pay for their students’ meals until March 1st and are also responsible to pay any negative balance on their student’s account for meals charges incurred between January 17, 2023 to March 1, 2023. 

We will be sending out notifications of any negative balances. Please fill out a myschoolbucks account to see past transactions and to receive low balance alerts.

Payments can be made in school cafeterias with a check (made out to Cheshire Public Schools) or cash. You can also make a payment online with a credit/debit card on MySchoolBucks for a fee. MySchoolBucks can also send low balance alerts and transaction history at no charge.
