Free or Reduced Lunch
Even though all Frontier Regional students will receive a free meal, we ask that families who believe they can qualify for a free or reduced lunch still fill out the application.
We encourage families to apply for SNAP benefits. SNAP provides monthly cash benefits (on an EBT card) to purchase groceries for eligible families. To apply for SNAP, visit DTA Connect at https://dtaconnect.eohhs.mass.gov/ or call the Project Bread FoodSource Hotline at 1-800-645-8333. Families approved for SNAP are directly eligible to receive free meals at school.
