Fairfield Public Schools To Extend Free Meals For The Remainder Of The 2022-23 School Year
Fairfield Public Schools has extended free meals for all students to continue through the 2022-23 school year. À la carte items such as snacks are available for purchase.
During the pandemic, the National School Lunch Program, a federally assisted meal initiative, provided school districts with the funds to serve free meals to students under the age of 18. The grant was set to expire in January 2023, but FPS is now able to extend the meal service through the end of the school year using excess School Food Authority funds.
