Program Overview

New Bedford Public Schools’ Food and Nutrition Services operates in 33 school meal sites across the city to provide breakfast, lunch, supper (at select locations), and after school snack (at select locations) to all students.

Food and Nutrition Services aims to provide nutritious meals and snacks that students love. These meals provide key vitamins and nutrients that support healthy growth and development in addition to supporting classroom instruction throughout the school day by keeping students fueled for learning.

Breakfast and lunch are available to ALL students enrolled at each of the school meals sites. At most sites, we operate a breakfast in the classroom program where students can select a breakfast meal to be eaten while daily classroom instruction begins.
