Andover to offer free meals beginning Sept. 14

Posted Date: 09/11/2020

Starting Monday, Sept. 14, Andover Public Schools is offering free meals to all students through a program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The free meal program will last until Dec. 18, 2020, or when federal funds run out, whichever comes first.

Students who are attending school in-person can receive their free breakfast or lunch in the cafeteria like they normally would.

On days they are learning from home, students in a hybrid model learning may pick up breakfast and lunch from noon-1 p.m. Monday through Friday at these locations:

  • Andover High School loading dock, Door P.
  • Andover Central High School loading dock, Door N.

Parents may pick up meals for their students. No meal pick-up will be available on days when school is not in session. Meals are available only for Andover Public Schools students attending brick-and-mortar schools.

While meals will be free for now, we still encourage families who qualify to complete a free/reduced meal application form. This will prepare them for when this program ends, so they can continue to receive free or reduced meal prices and will also allow for other fee reduction opportunities. Applications can be completed online from the district website.

Any questions on the program or Child Nutrition Applications may be directed to Bonnie Scarth at
