Breakfast and lunch will be available daily to every student in the New Bedford Public Schools, as well as Saint Teresa of Calcutta School, at no charge.

Our school district was selected to participate in new federal program that eliminates all meal fees, regardless of family income levels. This program was designed to serve more nutritious meals and save families money. Massachusetts was one of 10 states, along with the District of Columbia, to pilot the program. It is now available nationwide to communities that meet eligibility requirements.

We are so pleased that the New Bedford Public Schools included us to offer universal free meals in our school. We extend our gratitude to the New Bedford Public Schools for extending this tremendous opportunity to the Saint Teresa of Calcutta School children!
