September 2022 Food Service News and Updates

As a reminder, Free & Reduced Applications approved during the 2021-2022 school year expire on September 30, 2022. Parents and guardians must submit new applications at the start of the 2022-2023 school year to continue eligibility after September 30, 2022.

Families must fill out free and reduced meal price applications for the 2022-2023 school year and meet income qualifications in order to receive free meals. The application can be found on the Titan portal link on the district’s website homepage or at this link https://family.titank12.com/

Families who do not qualify for free and reduced price meals for students will need to resume paying for school meals.

If you are unable to fill out the application online, a copy was mailed to families in mid August or please feel free to reach out to the Main Office of either school. The Food Service Department will also have applications at both the BES 9/29 and BMHS Open Houses 10/6.

Free and Reduced Meals

Children from households that meet federal income guidelines are eligible for free meals or reduced priced meals. Reduced priced meals cost each eligible student $0 for breakfast and $0 for lunch.

Federal Mandates

Schools across the country are required to meet new federal nutritional standards that promote healthy lifestyles and address the rising rate of childhood obesity and increased health complications.  The guidelines set regulations on portion size, but offer a wide variety of milk, fruits, vegetables, proteins and grains.

  • Only fat free or low fat milk will be offered (flavored will be available)
  • Larger servings of fruits and vegetables and more variety
  • Whole grains products must be served
  • Specific portion sizes for grades K-5, 6-8 and 9-12
  • Students MUST select a minimum of 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetable

The food service staff works hard to maintain these guidelines, but still wants to provide a healthy and tasty meal to students.

If you have any questions regarding the Berlin Central School District Food Service Program, please contact Tammy Whitman, Food Service Director, at 518-658-1500, option 8, ext. 1022 or twhitman@berlincentral.org.
