Meal Plan, Menus and Forms

CCSC continues to offer school meals through the Community Eligibility Provision plan.  This program allows us to offer a nutritious breakfast and lunch in school every school day at no charge to families. However, you must order in advance to receive meals. (Lunch is not served on days when there is an 11:30 am early dismissal, special event schedule change, or during Roundtables). See information below.

  • Meals are prepared off-site and delivered fresh daily.

  • CCSC meals do not contain pork.

  • Students may bring their own nutritious snacks to eat during DEAR, the mid-morning silent reading period.

  • Students are not allowed to eat or drink anything but water in classrooms (except during DEAR as stated above).

WANT STUDENT SUCCESS?  Studies conclude that access to healthier foods and beverages creates healthy, well-nourished students that are better learners, have fewer distractions and less frustrations in the classroom.

Meal Hours: School breakfast is available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:20 am.  All breakfast items must be consumed and trash disposed of by 8:35 am. The lunch schedule is as follows:

  • MONDAY, TUESDAY, THURSDAY AND FRIDAY:  11:40 am - 12:10 pm

  • WEDNESDAY:  11:56 am - 12:25 pm

How to order school breakfast and/or lunch: To receive a school meal, everyone must complete a meal order form so that we can place timely orders with the caterer.

  • Menus will be posted online (see links below), and are shown in the meal order form.

  • Please click on “PLACE MY MEAL ORDER” to complete the order and submit online.

  • Orders must be place every month for service to continue.

  • If you would like to discontinue meal service, simply send an email to lsmith@ccscambridge.org with 'Stop Meal Service' in the subject line.  Include the student's name and grade.

Please submit as soon as possible to start meal service for your child. If you have any questions, or need assistance, please email  lsmith@ccscambridge.org, or call 617-354-0047.

Orders submitted late may delay meals for that student by one full ordering cycle.

If you have a food allergy:

  • When submitting a food order form, please inform the school if you have a food allergy. Food allergies must be noted by medical personnel in a student’s health record for menu changes to be made.

  • CCSC has students, staff and visitors with peanut and/or nut allergies. These allergies can be quite serious and for this reason CCSC is a “nut safe” school.

  • CCSC discourages staff and students from bringing peanuts, peanut butter, all nuts and products (like granola bars) containing these items to school.

  • The school has also worked hard to find a caterer that offers food that does not contain nuts and is not prepared with them.

Rules for Lunches Brought to School:

  • Students who do not wish to order the school lunch should bring a nutritious lunch.

  • The school offers microwaves for student lunches.

  • Due to federally mandated school food regulations, students and their families should not bring fast foods, junk food (e.g. chips, candy, etc.), or soda and sport drinks to school. These foods will be confiscated if found.
