School Meal Menus

Free Meals for All Students

Throughout the 2023-24 school year, the district will be participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) of the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program.

All students are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge each day of the 2023-24 school year. No application is required to participate in this program.

However, families should complete the Household Income Eligibility Form (HHIE) by October 1. The data gathered from this form allows the district to receive additional state and federal funding, and can qualify students for benefits such as reduced fees for SAT and ACT tests, reduced college application fees, discounts on Chromebook warranties and discounts on monthly internet services and computer purchases. The information from the HHIE form is confidential.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Erin Wright at erin.wright@neric.org or by calling 518-464-3945.

Policy Against Meal Shaming

The goal of the Cambridge Central School District is to provide student access to nutritious meals each school day and to ensure that a pupil whose parent/guardian has unpaid school meal fees is not shamed or treated differently than a pupil whose parent/guardian does not have unpaid meal fees.
