Food Services


The Food Services Department takes pride in offering delicious, healthy breakfasts and lunches to students on a daily basis. We recognize that nutrition plays a role in building strong bodies and minds, and so we stress the importance of nutritious meals and good eating habits. We also want families to know that we sometimes have to make changes to our monthly menus due to the availability of specific items from our food supply vendors. 


Governor Baker signed into law a one-year extension of School Meals for All for the 2022-2023 school year.

This is a huge step forward toward realizing our vision of a Massachusetts where hunger is permanently solved, by investing in universal school meals for the coming school year,  every student  in MA who wants or needs a school breakfast or lunch will receive meals at no cost to their family.-Project Bread

The seasons are changing again and we are seeing a warm up in our weather.  This is bringing us closer to summer time and school being out of session.  We want to let you know that the Nutrition staff at GMRSD is working hard to make sure we can offer healthy meals to any child who needs meals this summer. 

Our Summer Eats program is well into the planning stages, we are hoping to have at least 3, maybe 4 sites where families and children can come to a site for a nutritious, tasty breakfast or lunch.  Right now we will have staff set up in locations at Unity Park, Turners Falls High School and Carnegie Library.  All of these sites will be open to the public and any child under 18 is welcome to join us! 

We are kicking off our summer with a kick off event on June 26th from 4-6pm.  There will be games, local community resources, and FOOD!  We are offering food for children and adults FREE of charge that evening.  There will be prizes and previews of what we plan to give away as prizes through out the summer.  Join us, meet the summer staff and have a great meal! 


We also encourage our parents and students to take advantage of the FREE breakfast and lunch that are offered at ALL GMRSD school this school year.  Our job is to feed the kids of the community to the best of our ability.

Menus-Menus subject to change due to supply issues.  Lunch will be served on half days in all schools.

We try to keep the menu as accurate as possible, however supply chain issues make substitutions necessary. We are having multiple items unavailable when ordered, we try our best to modify the menu as items change due to unavailability.
