Food Service

Our district is committed to ensuring that each and every student has the meals they need to succeed in school.

Household Income Eligibility Forms are available on our website
 and available at the Main Office or the District’s Business Office. Completing an application may qualify your children for additional child nutrition benefits, such as the P-EBT benefit cards that have been provided in the past.

The cafeterias will remain cashless. Meals must be prepaid by setting up an account at  www.MySchoolBucks.com.

 



In recent years, USDA made significant changes to school meals in an effort to curb childhood obesity. The Healthy, Hunger Free Kid’s Act was passed into law in December 2010. In January of 2012 the U.S. Department of Agriculture released the final meal pattern requirements that are mandated by that law. To view additional information about the HHFKA (Healthy Hunger Free Kid's Act), please see the related file at the bottom of this page.

 


 

SUMMER FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM

 

 About the Summer Food Service Program

Summer Meal Sites: Children can visit one of the nearly 2,500 designated summer meal sites statewide, where free meals are available. These sites are conveniently located in neighborhood parks, pools, libraries, camps, schools, and community centers, making it easy to access nutritious food all summer long.

Meals To-Go: Many rural areas will provide locations offering pre-packaged meals for pick-up. Families in rural areas who are unable to visit these sites may be able to get meals for their kids delivered right to their home. Multiple days of meals are often bundled together for added convenience.

Summer EBT Program: Summer EBT is a new state program that provides $120 in food benefits to eligible children to help cover the cost of food when school is out of session. Most eligible children will receive Summer EBT food benefits automatically; however, some families may need to apply. Information on Summer EBT, including the application for families that need to apply, can be found at otda.ny.gov/SummerEBT. Children can receive Summer EBT food benefits and also participate in the Summer Food Service Program in their community.
