Providing nutritious food to students during the school day is another part of our commitment to
each and every Hartford student.
Student Meal Pick-up Locations
Hartford Public Schools is committed to ensuring that all our students continue to have access to nutritious breakfast and lunch meals. Our student meal distributions are convenient, economical, and a source of healthy fruits and vegetables.
Meals are distributed on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 16 HPS school sites. Combined, these distributions provide 7 days worth of student meals, which are available to anyone 18 years old and younger.
We are pleased to include fresh local produce in the meals when available. To ensure freshness and food safety, each meal bag comes frozen or refrigerated.
