• Free and Reduced Meal Program

    The federal waivers in response to the pandemic which allowed free school meals to be provided to all students are ending for the 2022-23 school year. Due to this change, you will need to complete and submit a free/reduced meal application after July 1, 2022 to determine if your child is eligible for free or reduced-price meals at school for the 2022-23 school year. The application can be found at the bottom of this page.

    Reduced-price Eligible Students

    Since July 1, 2019, students in New York state that are approved for reduced-price meals have and will continue to receive breakfast and lunch meals and snacks served through the afterschool snack program at no charge.
