Hamden Public Schools is very happy to make available meals for children during the Coronavirus-related school closures.

Breakfast and lunch "to go" meals are available for pick up Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9:00 AM and 12:00 PM to any child, age 18 and under.

We have five meal distribution locations:

  • Church Street School
  • Ridge Hill School
  • Hamden Middle School
  • Hamden High School 
  • M. L. Keefe Center

Fresh fruit and veggies are included in the food options available, and now, fully-cooked food options that can be heated at home, like chicken nuggets, pizza, and mac & cheese, are also available.

Weekend Meals Too! 

We are also offering meals to take home for the weekend!  You can pick up meals on Friday for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Important Notice:

There will be no food service on Good Friday, April 10. So that our children continue to have healthy food over the long weekend, families have the option to take four days worth of breakfast and lunch meals on Thursday, April 9.

As our normal custom has been, families may requests as many meals as they have children under the age of 18 in their household.

We will resume normal service beginning Monday, April 13th.
