School Meals Program
The East Greenwich Public Schools, in partnership with our food service provider Aramark, is committed to providing healthy, affordable, and appealing breakfast, lunch, snack and beverage options that support student well-being and academic success. In addition, we are committed to accommodating the dietary needs of every child, and to locally sourcing fresh and seasonal produce.

The East Greenwich School Department asks qualifying families to fill out a school meals application. Similar to last year, the federal government will again provide free standard meals for any and all school age children that wish to participate. However, it is still very important that families complete the Free and Reduced Lunch Application Forms. The school meals application also helps the district and your child’s school receive much-needed education funding. If one or more people in your household receives benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), or the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR), or if your child is classified as homeless, runaway, or migrant, then your child is categorically eligible for free school meals. Families can fill out and submit school meals applications at any point in the school year. Families also can submit a new application if something changes, such as a parent or other member of the household losing their job or having their hours reduced. If all of your children are enrolled in East Greenwich schools, you only need to submit one application; however, families must fill out a new school meals application each school year. Applications are completely confidential, can be completed by all families enrolled in our school district, do not require a Social Security number, and have no effect on public charge. Free and Reduced Meal Application.
