Apply for Free & Reduced Meal benefits.


    Even though breakfast and lunch meals are free for all students again this year, we are requesting that all families fill out a free and reduced meal application. Over $475,000 comes to our district each year based on the number of qualifying children. Additionally, when the percentages are high enough, we qualify for more school nutrition programs that serve all students. By submitting your application, you help us ensure that we have reached everyone who may qualify.

    Only 1 application is needed per household.

  • ACSD School Nutrition Program


    We are transitioning to ACSD run School Nutriton Programs at MHS, MUMS and MHS for the 2021/2022 school year.  We're working hard creating new menus and new relationships with our local farms.  Keep checking in throughout the year for more information.


     School Meal Funding Continues

    The USDA has extended funding for free meals through the 2021/2022 school year.  This means every student is eligible for a free breakfast meal and a free lunch meal regardless of free and reduced status.


    WE STILL NEED YOUR APPLICATION.  There are other benefits that you and our schools may qualify for based on your eligibility for Free and Reduced Meals.  Don't delay in filling out your application.  


    Please contact Laura La Vacca at 802-382-1423 or llavacca@acsdvt.org with any questions.
