Lunch Menu

The Nutrition Services Department provides nourishing meals to the West Hartford Schools' students and staff, giving them the fuel they need to learn.

We have received guidance from the State of Connecticut regarding Breakfast and Lunch for the 2023 – 2024 school year. Breakfast is FREE for ALL students and any student who qualifies for Reduced-Price meals will receive FREE lunch.

There are a couple of important points to remember.

  • One school breakfast and one school lunch per school day will be provided at no cost to each student. 
  • Second meals are available for purchase at the following prices:
    • Breakfast
         $1.50 Elementary
         $1.75 Middle/High
    • Lunch
         $3.25 Elementary
         $3.50 Middle/High
  • A la carte items are also available for purchase.
  • We will continue to collect free and reduced-price meal applications, as it is important that we do so in order to ensure families receive proper benefits.
    If you have not already submitted a 2022/2023 free and reduced-priced meals application, we encourage you to do so. DO NOT SUBMIT AN APPLICATION IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED ONE OR IF YOU HAVE ALREADY BEEN APPROVED BASED ON DIRECT CERTIFICATION. Please click below on the Free and Reduced Lunch tab where you have the option to complete an application electronically or print an application to be completed and returned to any one of the schools or the Nutrition Services Office. You may also request an application from any one of the school offices or the Nutrition Services Office. 
  • The following parent video may be helpful in completing the free and reduced-price meals application. 
  • In addition, the following information regarding the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) (see Addendum C) may be helpful.
