The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that schools may extend the free meals program that our district participated in from March until August. Plainfield Public Schools have been approved to allow any child in the Town 18 years old or under regardless of financial eligibility status to receive FREE meals. This will begin Monday, September 14. This includes meals for students who are enrolled in our remote learning model and all students eating in school. Per the USDA, this program will be available through December 31, 2020, or until allocated Federal funding is depleted, whichever is sooner. We will continue to keep families updated if this occurs before December 31, 2020.

It is important that families submit updated free/reduced meal applications if there are any changes in household size or income. Confidential applications are accepted throughout the school year and, if approved, are effective through the last day of the 2020-2021 school year. Applications and instructions for applying can be found by visiting:
