Montclair Public Schools participates in the USDA Child Nutrition Program. 

School Nutrition Program Update

The Seamless summer option (SSO) that provided free lunch for all students for the last two years has ended.

The Montclair School District will be returning to the National School Lunch Program which requires applications to be completed to determine eligibility for free or reduced lunch for the 2022-2023 school year.

The updated application can be found on our website in English and Spanish, or the online free/reduced lunch application link.

As a reminder, only one application is needed for all students in your household.

A free/reduced lunch application must be completed each school 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?

Food Service Information for the 2023-2024 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.
