Nutrition and Transportation


Access to healthier foods and beverages is important because healthy, well-nourished students are better learners. Students who consume healthier foods and beverages are more likely to get the nutrients they need to learn, play, and grow. CCSC offers breakfast and lunch free of charge to all students through the Community Eligibility Provision plan (see press release here). Meals are prepared off-site and delivered fresh daily. CCSC meals do not contain pork.

Please use this form to order free school meals. Click here for our monthly breakfast and lunch menus. Nutrition information for school meals is available here

Please reach out to Reem Bou-Nacklie, Nutrition and Operations Coordinator, with any questions.

Information about local food and housing resources is available here and on our Community Resources page.    

Allergies and Food Intolerances

If you have any allergies or intolerances, please contact Reem Bou-Nacklie (Nutrition and Operations Coordinator) at or (617) 354-0047 and Katie Forrest (School Nurse) at

For students living in Cambridge

For Cambridge students in grades 6 through 8, transportation is provided by the Cambridge Public Schools Department of Transportation. Students who live more than 1.5 miles from school are picked up and dropped off free of charge.

For more information, call the CPS Transportation Department at 617-349-6860 or 617-349-6862.

Students in grades 9 through 12 get to CCSC in a variety of ways. Many students take public transportation. CCSC is located within seven minutes of the Kendall Square Red Line station and within ten minutes of the Lechmere station on the Green Line. MBTA passes are provided at a discounted rate to students. Other students are either dropped off and picked up by parents or guardians or commute on foot.

For students living outside Cambridge

Transportation options for residents of other cities mirror those for students in grades 9 through 12 who live in Cambridge. Students use the MBTA or rely on parents and guardians who drop them off and/or pick them up.

MBTA discount passes are provided to students monthly (see here for the payment schedule). Please reach out to Ms. Emma with questions.
