We have been notified by NYSED Child Nutrition that the USDA has extended the provision of free meals to our students through June 30, 2023

It is still very important for reimbursement and other state grants that the Free & Reduced Price Lunch application be submitted.

We need only one application per family. If your children are in more than one school building, you may receive more than one application. You may keep or discard any duplicates.

If you have any questions or need help in filling out the application form, please contact: 
Cassandra Castle, Assistant Food Service Director at 607-433-8243 Ext: 2153
