    Information Sheet for Requesting Take-Out Meals

    During the School Year 2020 – 2021


    Due to COVID-19 our daily school schedule is going to look very different this year.  Cambridge Central School does not wish for any of our students to experience food difficulties and we do not want breakfast and lunch to be an added burden for parents.  Therefore, we are offering take-out meals on school days that your child(ren) is not in the school building. 


    Who can receive meals?

    1. All CCS students


    How do I receive the meals?

    1. You fill out the request form, sign it, and return to the cafeteria
    2. A form is included
    3. Forms are also on the school website, cafeteria webpage, in the main offices, and cafeteria office
    4. The form goes to Amy Braun, Cafeteria Manager


    What are the meals?

    1. Breakfast and Lunch
    2. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended the waiver allowing ALL CCS student’s to receive free meals through December 31, 2020, dependent on available funding.
    3. If the USDA waiver expires or is cancelled you will be notified and the following will be put into effect:
      1. Free/Reduced Meal Program applies to take-out meals
      2. All paid eligible students must pre-pay. No charging of any meals is permissible per the directive of The Office of Child Nutrition, State Education Department.
      3. Meal Prices: breakfast $1.35 

                          lunch: Grades K-3 $1.75, 4-6 $1.95, 7-12 $2.25 



    Where will we receive our meals?

    Your child will go into 1 of 4 groups.  You will mark this on your form.

    1. 100% Remote Learners: pick-up meals outside the high school music room on Monday at 9 am. You will remain in your car like we did in the spring. You will receive 5 days of meals.
    2. High School Group A: At the end of the school day on Tuesday your child will pick-up, in a place to be determined, 3 days of meals (Wed-Thurs-Fri) to take home.

    4. 7th/8th: At the end of the school day on Tuesday your child will pick-up, in a place to be determined, meals for Wednesday to take home.
