Free and Reduced Lunch Info

Vermont’s new Universal School Meals law means all students can eat breakfast and lunch for free. This will have a huge impact in making sure no Vermont child goes without healthy food.  

But we need your help. Together, we can reduce the cost of Universal School Meals for Vermont taxpayers and help our schools access millions in federal education dollars. Please fill out the Free and Reduced Meals application to help Vermont residents reduce their tax burden and increase Colchester School District’s access to federal funds.

Each submitted Free/Reduced Meals application helps:

  • Colchester schools access critical federal dollars for education,summer and afterschool meal programs
  • Provide students in our district and across Vermont with healthy, nutritious food.
  • Keep education taxes from going up in our community.

Filling out the online form only takes a few minutes, and it will help your community, your school, and your tax bill.
