I am pleased to share that the Nutley Public Schools will continue to provide meals to all students throughout the 2021-2022 school year at no charge to families under the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) federal meal program.  In-school meal service will begin Tuesday, September 7, 2021. Additional information will follow in the coming weeks.


This is a reminder that the meal distribution program for all Nutley resident children under the age of 18, regardless of school or eligibility for free/reduced lunch is continuing on Wednesdays through Wednesday, September 1, 2021.  Meal pick-up is at the John H. Walker Middle School. Curbside pick-up of meals takes place outside of the Middle School cafeteria. Please access the drive-through by entering from Hillside Crescent (off of Chestnut Street). Contact free pick up is available by allowing access to the trunk of your car.


If you are walking up, please wear a face covering at all times.


Pick up is between 9:00AM and 2:00 PM each Wednesday.


Any child under the age of 18 can pick up the meals for the family. Students will receive lunch and breakfast for each day covering Monday through Friday. Volunteers will have families sign for the meals and maintain the roster.


Any adult 18 years or older who is requesting meals will be required to show proof of Nutley residency (driver’s license, utility bill, lease document, etc.) and provide children’s names and ages. Failure to provide the necessary Nutley residency documentation will result in a denial of grab and go meals at the school.


No resident will be denied services, as we continue our partnership with the Nutley Family Service Bureau. The Nutley Family Service Bureau maintains the community food pantry responding to the needs of those among us who experience food insecurity. If a person or family needs additional food support, they are instructed to call 973-667-1884. Information is also available on the NFSB website,


The Nutley School District serves approximately 4,100 students in Kindergarten through grade 12. The five elementary schools serve students K-6 and include Lincoln School, Radcliffe School, Spring Garden School, Washington School and Yantacaw School. John H. Walker Middle School serves students in grades 7-8 while Nutley High School addresses the needs of students in grades 9-12.
