Food Service Program

In the 2023-2024 school year, we are able to provide FREE breakfast to ALL students as well as FREE lunch to those ELIGIBLE for free and Reduced prices. Thank you to the State Transition Assistance for Breakfast and Lunch Expenses (STABLE) funds! While lunch for full-pay students remains a paid service, each full-pay student will now enjoy one complimentary breakfast each day. 

The CT Summer Meals Program is now available!

The program provides free, nutritious meals to kids during summer break. Summer Meals meet federal nutrition guidelines and are composed of milk, fruits, vegetables, grains, and meat or another protein. Summer Meals are offered at hundreds of sites around the state from June to late August, serving combinations of breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Meals are free to any child age 18 and under, no questions asked.

Food Services

LEARN Regional Educational Service Center administers four magnet schools in Connecticut and believes it is important to provide a high-quality Food Service Program at each of our schools.

Children who eat well-balanced meals and are physically healthy are more likely to learn in the classroom.  The link between good nutrition and good education is clearly demonstrated by better attendance, higher test scores, and fewer behavioral problems in school. Click here to read LEARN's full Student Nutrition and Physical Activity: Student Wellness Policy (#6118).


The schools LEARN currently provides food service are:
