All of North Adams Public Schools participate in the Community Eligibility Program. This program allows the district to offer one free breakfast through the USDA National School Breakfast Program and one free lunch through the USDA National School lunch Program to all students daily free of charge. All other additional food purchases by students must be paid in full with cash or account funds at the time of purchase.
All North Adams Public Elementary Schools utilize a breakfast in the classroom service delivery model. Each week students pre-order their choice of a main breakfast entrée from a variety of options and choose from a selection of milks. The breakfast entrée and milk choices are delivered daily to classrooms along with two different servings of fruit. As required, an additional serving of a whole grain product such as a graham cracker is also provided three days a week. Drury High School uses a traditional breakfast in the cafeteria service model.
Brayton Elementary School, Colegrove Park Elementary School, and Greylock Elementary School participate in the USDA After School Snack Program. Students that participate in North Adams Schools 21st Century After School Programming can choose a healthy snack free of charge when the program is in session.
