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.

For the 2018/19 school year, Hillcrest, Sheffield, Great Falls Middle School, and Turners Falls High School are enrolled in the Community Eligibility Program, which makes it possible for us to provide the main breakfast and lunch meals  to students at no cost to families. A la carte items, extras, snacks, and seconds must still be purchased; students can pay with cash or you can deposit funds in a PaySchoolCentral account for them to draw against.

At Gill Elementary School, students pay $1.50 for breakfast and $2.50 for lunch, unless their household qualifies for free or reduced-price meals. We have notified prequalified families already, but if your household circumstance have changed this year and you think you might qualify, please fill out an application and send it to me!
