Our Program

CTECS School Meals Program prides itself on serving nutritious breakfasts and lunches to students in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. Our School Meals team is eager to prepare and offer a varied selection of breakfast and lunch meals that are both healthy and well-balanced, providing students with the nutrition they need to succeed in the classroom.

All meals are planned in compliance with the standards established by the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. Menus support, promote and reinforce the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans, encouraging increased consumption of nutrient dense foods and beverages such as fresh fruits, colorful vegetables, whole grains and low fat dairy products, while limiting levels of saturated and trans fats, sodium and added sugars.

Free Breakfast and Lunch

Breakfasts and lunches are available to all CTECS students at no charge, regardless of the school they attend. CTECS schools participate in the Community Eligibility Provision program, which provides all meals to all students at no charge. As such, families no longer need to fill out an application.

If you have any questions or concerns about the School Meals Program in the CTECS schools, please contact the Office of Nutrition and School Meals at 860-807-2017.
