IACS School Breakfast and Lunch Program

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has extended free school meals for all students through the 2022-2023 school year. This means that breakfast and lunch will continue to be served at no cost to all students.

Please note: ALL STUDENTS MUST USE THEIR PIN # at the cafeteria registers if they choose to participate in the IACS School Nutrition Program to receive free meals.

Parent Portal for School Meal Account/PIN#

Using the Parent Portal parents have the option to load funds onto each students’ meal accounts, monitor menu choices and account balances and restrict purchases. IACS offers second meals, drinks and snacks which are not included in the free meal program. Students must use their PIN for free meals and purchases. Cashiers also accept cash at the registers.

Free or Reduced Price Meal Eligibility

You will receive notification from IACS if your child(ren) is eligible for free or reduced price meals before school begins. You DO NOT need to complete an application if you receive this notification.

If you have NOT received notification of free or reduced price meals, and even though meals will be free for all, it is important for families to still complete the household Application for Free and Reduced Price Meals for the 2022-2023 school year as you may be eligible for other benefits.

In addition, please consider applying for SNAP, the federal nutrition program that provides eligible residents with monthly financial assistance to purchase groceries. More SNAP information can be found at or by calling Project Bread’s FoodSource Hotline at 1-800-645-8333.

Food Allergies and Special Dietary Needs

If your child has food allergies or special dietary needs, please contact the school nurse Gayle Nutile Pimm AND Karen Drake

Contact Karen Drake, Director Food Services if you have any questions.
