Food AssistanceMarch 25, 2020
During the extended school closure, Glastonbury Public Schools Food Service Department will provide free breakfast and lunch for students in need. This is available to all household members 18 years old and younger provided one child in the household is enrolled in our schools. Preparing and serving meals from a central location is the most efficient and safest way to provide these meals to our families.
We are estimating meal numbers based on families who completed our survey. You can still register by clicking this link. We need this information to ensure enough meals are available. The exchange of meals will be done safely and with social distancing in mind. You will be asked to give us the name of the school in which your student is enrolled and the number of children in the household. Your meals will be placed on a cart by the school staff where you can pick them up. If you see people waiting, please wait in your car or at least 6 feet away from others. Please email any questions to Food Service Director, Jessica D’Agnese at DAgneseJ@Glastonburyus.org.
Due to the Memorial Day Holiday, there will be no food assistance this coming Monday, May 25. We will only provide meals on Wednesday and Friday next week. We will, however, be providing an extra lunch and breakfast meal on Friday, May 22.
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays* 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
@Gideon Welles School, 1029 Neipsic Road, Auditorium/Gymnasium side entrance
*Monday/Wednesday is 2 breakfast and 2 lunches per child. Friday is 1 breakfast and 1 lunch per child.
**Due to the asbestos abatement activities at Glastonbury High School, the Food Assistance program moves to Gideon Welles School from May 18 through the end of the school year.

Summer Meals Program:
Childhood food insecurity remains at unacceptable levels across the country and children are most acutely at risk in the summer when they do not have access to school meals. In the summer of 2017 there were 689 sites across Connecticut offering free meals to children 18 years and younger, yet only 1 out of 4 of Connecticut’s children who access school meals accessed the Free Summer Meals.Children ages 18 and younger may visit Open Summer Meals sites anywhere in the state to receive a meal. There is no application, identification or commitment to participate in Summer Meals.
