Dear Families,

Many may have already learned that recent legislation has provided additional School Meals Assistance Revenue for Transition (SMART) funds. North Branford Public Schools has opted into this program once again to provide meals (one lunch per day) at no cost for all students beginning March 1, 2023 through the end of the 2022-2023 school year. Additional meals and any a la carte purchases are charged at the scheduled pricing. As a reminder, you can create a free MySchoolBucks account to conveniently and securely add money to your student’s meal account online or with the mobile app at

It is important, for households who may qualify, to submit a free and reduced-price meal application to determine a student’s eligibility for the school year. A new application is required each school year. This application and related information can be found on this page. Please view this helpful parent video on How to Fill Out the Application for Free and Reduced-price Meals or Free Milk.

As an additional note, families may qualify for free and reduced meals through the school meal application process or through the direct certification process managed by the Connecticut State Department of Social Services (CT DSS). The direct certification process coincides with food assistance programs extended by the CT DSS to families in need of this qualified assistance. These programs include the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance (TANF) and Medicaid.
