Free & Reduced Meals

If your family might require free or reduced meals after this extension, we encourage you to complete an application. See our Free & Reduced Meal application.

The Free and Reduced Meal program provides students with free or reduced price breakfast and lunch throughout the school year. In addition, during the COVID pandemic, enrollment in the Free and Reduced Meal program may also qualify families for additional funds from the Pandemic EBT program (P-EBT).

Note about the P-EBT program: You DO NOT have to get EBT benefits to be eligible to get funds from the P-EBT program. A card will be sent to you for this purpose. For questions, please read the MA website for more information about the P-EBT program.)

Additional Food Support Programs & Information

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) for Natick Families

SNAP benefits allow you to purchase healthy food while stretching your grocery

budget. Benefits of SNAP include:

  • Monthly funds to purchase foods that meet your dietary needs, and that you enjoy.

  • Automatic enrollment in the Healthy Incentives Program (HIP), which gives you back $1 for each dollar you spend on eligible fruits and vegetables purchased from a HIP vendor, up to a monthly maximum.

  • Ability to stretch your grocery budget even further by shopping at HIP authorized vendors at the Natick Winter Farmers Market.

Eligibility for SNAP is based on income, household size and certain expenses.

Please call to complete an application or for more information on how our town Human Services Department can offer your family assistance.
