The Montclair Public Schools Food Services Department is committed to the nutritional well-being of our students. Our breakfast and lunch options provide the nutritional fuel that our students need to succeed in the classroom and community. Our menus and food service operations follow USDA and State regulations and policies. In addition, our food service program is an allergy aware program.

Free/Reduced Lunch

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?

Outstanding Balances

The Board of Education recognizes a student may forget to bring breakfast and/or a lunch meal or not have money to purchase a meal at school on a school day. In this circumstance, the food service program will provide the student with a meal, not snacks. Our district follows USDA and state regulations and will not deny a student a meal. However, the student's account will be charged accordingly and parents/guardians are responsible for the amount owed. Balances are rolled over year to year. 

Payments can be made:
