2021-22 School Year Lunches

Good news! For school year 2021-22, the Hamden Public School District has opted to participate in the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) of the National School Lunch Program. This means that all students enrolled in  Hamden Public Schools will receive breakfast and lunch free of charge.

However, it remains critical that you complete and submit your free and reduced-price meal application to Hamden Public Schools in order to determine eligibility for other programs, like the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), discounted technology and WiFi programs, and more.
