Welcome to Food & Nutrition
The Portsmouth School Department is committed to providing our students with nutritious, affordable meals during the school day. As of the 2022-23 school year, school breakfast and lunch are no longer free for all students in Rhode Island. Parents/guardians are encouraged to read the information below where you can apply online for free or reduced assistance and/or set up a MySchoolBucks recurring payment plan. Please contact your child’s principal for questions or further assistance at any time. School meals are among the healthiest meals that children eat in a day and we encourage all students to participate.
