Nutrition

Thompson Public School cafeterias are meeting tough new federal nutrition standards for school menus, making sure our students have meals that are healthy, well-balanced, and provide the nutrition they need to succeed in school.

School meals offer milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and meet strict limits on saturated fats and portion sizes.

SNAP

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

SNAP is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which offers nutrition assistance to eligible individuals and families and provides economic benefits to communities. SNAP helps individuals and families purchase food at participating supermarkets, groceries, and farmers markets. This federally funded program was created to help income-eligible recipients eat well and stay healthy. The program is administered by the United States Department of Agriculture and the CT State Department of Social Services.

SNAP benefits are provided by a Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card—a plastic swipe card that looks and is used like a credit or debit card and is accepted at most grocery stores. SNAP benefits are deposited monthly to your EBT card.

  • You will stretch your food dollars
  • You will support you school and community

Connecticut Food Bank and Foodshare Officially Unite

Foodshare and Connecticut Food Bank, the state’s two largest nonprofit anti-hunger organizations, merged to become one organization effective January 30, 2021. The new organization will address hunger with a united voice, a fully coordinated distribution model, and an integrated set of programs made available across the entire state. By merging their operations and service areas, these food banks will be able to more effectively serve people across Connecticut and make a stronger impact on hunger statewide. The food banks will continue to operate out of their Wallingford, Bloomfield, and Bridgeport facilities and will continue to use their existing trade names until a new name is chosen in the coming weeks.

Connecticut Food Bank and Foodshare are Connecticut’s two regional food banks. Both are members of the national Feeding America network. Last year, Connecticut Food Bank and Foodshare distributed enough food to provide nearly 40 million meals through a network of more than 700 community-based hunger-relief programs, including food pantries, community kitchens, and emergency shelters, while also working on long-term solutions to food insecurity. More than 8,000 volunteers help power the work of the food banks. Last year, they gave 62,000 hours of service.
