Dear Milford Public Schools Families,
As we all prepare for the new year, we are writing to you today to inform you that the last day for free meals for all students in the Milford Public Schools has been extended to Friday, January 6, 2023. Beginning on Monday, January 9th, our district will return to serving meals for purchase. If your family previously qualified through the Free/Reduced Price Application (filed during the 2022-23 school year), discounted or free meals for those children will not be disrupted. Letters to approved families for discounted (reduced price) or free meals have already been sent so if you have received one of these letters, you do not need to complete any additional forms. If you have NOT received a letter – or if you never completed a Free/Reduced Price Application this school year – we urge you to do so as soon as possible. The application, as well as other information, is located on the district website HERE.
Meal Prices, as of January 9, 2023.
Middle School: $2.00
High School: $2.50
Middle School: $3.60
High School: $3.85
At all levels, reduced-price breakfasts for qualifying families are 30¢.
At all levels, reduced-price lunches for qualifying families are 40¢.
SNAP Program: An Alternative for Free/Reduced Price Meals
Back in October, the income level required for eligibility for SNAP (formerly known as Food Stamps) was increased, so some families who previously did not qualify for SNAP may now qualify. Any student who receives SNAP benefits is automatically eligible for free school meals. Click HERE to go right to Connecticut’s dedicated website page about SNAP funds and directions on how to apply.
Paying For Lunches
For families who will need to purchase meals for their children, we have several convenient options for you to do so. The online payment portal, Titan, offers you many advantages for keeping track of your child’s meal spending and is a great way to manage his/her account. You can access your child’s Titan account 24/7/365 – from anywhere. If you haven’t created a payment portal account in the Titan system, please consider doing so as soon as possible. Details and directions on how to do this appear on the district website; click HERE to get started.
The Milford Foodservice Department will also accept checks; please complete a deposit slip and send it in with your child along with your check. Please make sure to indicate your child’s name on the note line on the check.
At this time, cash cannot be accepted in the Milford Foodservice program.
We thank you for your patronage and your support in the coming year. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact your child’s school cafeteria manager or the Milford Foodservice Central Office at (203) 783-3490.
