    Dear North Canaan Families,

    I am pleased to announce that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is offering a program to school districts that provides FREE meals to all children in our community ages 18 and under. This program will be in place in our town until December 31st, or until the federal funding has been exhausted.

    We welcome families who reside in the Town of North Canaan with children 18 and younger (who are not attending school) to complete the survey to begin receiving free breakfasts and lunches on days that school is in session. The survey must be completed each week. Click here to take the survey if you would like meals and your child is not enrolled at North Canaan Elementary School. (en espanol)

    ● Please note that you will have to come to the school to pick up lunch each school day between the hours of 11:30 AM -1:05 PM.
    ● With the lunch you will receive breakfast for the following day.
    ● When you arrive at the school please drive to the front semicircle and call the school office at 860-824-5149. Let them know that you are there to pick up your child’s/children’s meals.

    All students who are in school each day and our distance learners are eligible to receive breakfast and lunch at no charge while this program is in place. Our distance learner families and our families who sign up for breakfast in school each week should continue to complete the weekly surveys that are emailed to them or click the appropriate link below.
