We provide breakfast and lunch at all Naugatuck Schools in accordance with USDA and state regulations.

Foods are prepared by trained staff who strive to offer students high quality, nutritious, kid-friendly meals at a reasonable price. All reimbursable meals are served with a choice of entrée, fruit, vegetables, and milk. Students may take up to 2 fruits & 2 vegetables. Reimbursable meals have 3 components and 1 must be a ½ cup of fruit or a ½ cup of vegetables. We serve a variety of whole-grain breads and rolls, an assortment of low fat and fat-free flavored & unflavored milk. 100% fruit juice and regionally & locally grown whole fresh fruit when seasonally available. We also serve a colorful variety of vegetables.

The district participates in the Community Eligibility Provision, (CEP), a program of the USDA that provides free meals to all Naugatuck students.  CEP allows schools that predominantly serve low-income children to offer free, nutritious school meals to all students through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP). The CEP uses information from other programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Temporary Family Assistance (TFA), instead of traditional paper lunch applications.  

If, at any time, you have questions about your child’s account, please contact our Food Service Director, Kate Murphy at 203-720-5279.
