Summer EBT Information
Beginning in 2024, New York State will launch Summer EBT, a new program that provides low-income families with food benefits to help cover the cost of groceries when school is out of session. Summer is the time when many children lose access to free meals they get at school. Most eligible children will receive Summer EBT food benefits automatically; however, some families may need to apply. This program is through New York State and not the school district please find more information at the link below.

REMINDER: ALL students in the Berlin Central School District will be receiving free meals for the 2023/2024 school year through Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).  This program was  established under The Healthy, Hungry Free Kids Act of 2010 and BCSD has qualified. Students MUST take all components of the meal to avoid paying for individual items.
Every student will receive one full breakfast and one full lunch at no cost, regardless of your income.  However, students who would like to purchase additional items such as ice cream, second meals, additional entrees, etc. must have money in their account or cash in hand. Please visit https://linqconnect.com for more information on how to add money to your child’s account.

 

Dear Parent or Guardian:

 

We are pleased to inform you that Berlin Elementary School and Berlin Middle High School will be implementing a meal certification option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for 2023 / 2024.

 

What does this mean for your child(ren) attending the school(s) identified above?

 

All students enrolled at Berlin Elementary School or Berlin Middle High School are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at NO CHARGE to your household each day of the 2023 / 2024 school year.
