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.

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
