Salem School Food Services - Welcome to the Cougar Cafe!
Salem School District Return to Regular Priced Meals:
During the transition back to normal school operations this school year, the District opted into providing meals free of charge for the beginning of the school year. Free meals to all students are subject to availability of district funds from the State of CT, and will expire on October 31, 2022.
Starting on November 1, 2022, Salem School District free of charge meals for students will no longer be available and the student will be expected to pay full price. If you would like to apply for Free/Reduced Meals please click here to go on the schools webpage and download an application. If you have already received a letter for Free/Reduced benefits from the school district this school year no new application is required. You will receive account deposit information in the coming weeks from the school office. Please note that if you have a student attending East Lyme High School they will receive a separate date for the end of the free meals from East Lyme High School that is calculated based on aide allotment to East Lyme Public Schools.
The price of a paid lunch is $3.25 and breakfast is $1.50.
