Our mission is to provide varied and nutritious meals to the children and staff of our school district.
Much has been said about the shortage of food items. We want everyone to be aware that there is not a food shortage as much as there is a food shortage of certain items. For example, we might be able to bring in chicken, but it might not be chicken patties. We will have to work with what our vendors are able to bring into their warehouses. This means we will have menu changes. We will do our absolute best to make sure we have what we put on the menu, but at this time, there is no guarantee. If there needs to be a menu change, we will notify as many people as possible, as many ways as possible, website, social media, announcements. We will make sure that every child has a meal, and a meal they like!
We are pleased to inform you that Greene Central Schools will be participating in the Community Eligibility Provision available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for the 2023-2024 school year. This program will continue for four (4) years.
What does this mean for your child(ren) attending the school(s) identified above?
All students enrolled at Greene Central School are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2023-2024 school year. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a free and reduced application. Only one breakfast and one lunch are available at no charge. Extras, snacks, ala carte items and milk (purchased separate from a meal) will have to be purchased. Make sure you join us for breakfast and lunch!
A CEP application is included in our newsletter and available online. We encourage each family to fill it out and return it all soon as possible for other funding options available to our school.
We feel this valuable program will be beneficial to all the children in our district and the community.
PLEASE be reminded- we have an on-line payment service available.
Greene Central has a convenient and secure online payment service called mySchoolBucks. This website allows you to deposit money directly into your child’s school meal account and view balance/purchase information for the past ninety days. By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find that the lunch lines move along much faster, which gives your child more time to eat and be with friends.
To access this service:
- Go to the district web site at www.greenecsd.org
- Click the Departments tab, then select the Food Services link.
- Click the mySchoolBucks link.
- From this website you can create your account and add money to your child’s school meal account. All you need is your child’s name, school, and Cafeteria Pin number.
