Support Free Meals for Connecticut Schools!

At the start of the pandemic, Connecticut enacted legislated to create a free school meals program, ensuring free breakfast for all K-12 students and free lunches for students who qualify for reduced-price meals. This fund expires at the end of the 2023-2024 school year. The Connecticut General Assembly will have a committee hearing on renewing this program through June 2025 Tuesday, April 2nd at 10:00am in bill HB 5510.

This program is essential for students and families in Connecticut. It helps students be more successful academically, provides much needed economic relief for families, and helps to fight food insecurity in Connecticut. Join us in submitting testimony to your Connecticut State Senator and Representative advocating for this bill! By filling out the simple form and template created by End Hunger CT found here, help fight to expand access to food in schools in CT.
