North Canaan Elementary School

2023-2024 Meal Pricing

North Canaan Elementary School is happy to be able to offer FREE BREAKFAST to all of our students this year! It is so important to start the day fueled up and ready to learn.

Students who qualify for free and reduced-priced meals will have lunch at no cost to families. A program designed by the State of Connecticut has made this possible. Lunch for students who do not qualify for free or reduced-price meals will cost $3.10 per day. Milk is available for purchase separately. If your child chooses to bring meals from home, he or she can purchase milk for $0.35 cents. You can send in cash or check with your child, or you can pay by credit or debit card through the School Payment Portal. Please contact Tammy McGuire at if you need assistance setting up an account.


We want to remind you that you should complete the Free and Reduced Meal Application for this school year. An approved application may entitle your family to benefits beyond free breakfast and lunch. Free and reduced meal applications will be distributed to all students on the first day of school. You may contact Tammy McGuire in the main office at 860-824-5149, ext. 107, or, if you would like us to send another copy of the application home with your child. Applications are also available on our website under the Parents tab, then Food Service, or click this link:  Applications are available in English and Spanish. Please click on the following link for a helpful video on completing the application: The following link provides guidelines to help you determine whether you may qualify for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP):
