Free School Meals

Dear Parents and Guardians,


We want to update you with exciting news about universal free school meals. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has decided to extend free school meals for all students through the 2023-2024 school year! This means that breakfast and lunch will continue to be served at no cost to all students.


Free and Reduced Application: Only fill out a free and reduced application if you might qualify for EBT benefits through the state and for fee waivers for district fees such as bus fees, athletic fees etc. Meals are free for all students regardless of income. 


For all students, Ala carte items and second lunches are extra. Students will need to pay with cash or have money in their account to purchase these items. There is no charging (into a negative balance) for these items.


Second lunches will be charged at regular price. Middle/High school: $3.00, Elementary schools: $2.75. Milk, juice, and a small bottle of water are $.50 if purchased without a meal. A la carte snacks will be available for purchase as offered.


Menus will be posted on our website,, under the “Nutrition” tab. 


Preferred method of payment:


  • Online:
  • Check Payable to:  Town of Cohasset (please put your child’s first and last name in the memo field).
  • Cash:  Please put in an envelope clearly marked “School Lunch” with your child’s first and last name on it.
