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. To apply for free or reduced priced meals, submit a Direct Certification letter from the NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance OR complete a 2020-2021 Application For Free and Reduced Price School Meals/Milk  sign it, and return it to Tammy Whitman, Treasurer/Food Service Director, Business Office.  Registering for this program is completely confidential.

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.
