Food Services

The Douglas School Nutrition Program offers healthy and well balanced breakfast and lunch meals. Each and every meal served adheres to strict USDA standards for nutrition, portion size, calories, and much more.

Due to the pandemic, the cost of meals has been waived for this school year! Breakfast and Lunch are served at each school daily. There is no lunch served on half-days.

Please see the Meal Charging policy the School Committee has voted on regarding the Charge and Collection of Payment.

All families are still encouraged to fill out an application for our free and reduced meal program despite the meal fee waiver this year. This application can be filled out and returned to the school office at any point during the school year. You may also mail it to: 

Raquel Hammond- Douglas Public Schools
21 Davis Street 
Douglas, MA 01516

Paying for school lunches has also never been easier. The Douglas Public Schools is also pleased to work with myschoolbucks.com to offer parents a convenient and secure online prepayment service. Some benefits of this service are: 

  • Prepay for meals online in any amount 
  • View your child's account balance, and purchase history
  • Lunch lines move much quicker if students and staff aren't counting money, giving your child more time to eat and socialize with their friends

We look forward to serving lunch to your child in the cafeteria this school year. Our menus are posted on the school website monthly. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact Raquel Hammond at: 508-476-3332 ext. 2253 or via email at: rhammond@douglasps.net
