Menu changes for the week of Sept. 17 to Sept. 24
An important note about food service for the 2021-22 school year
As many of you are already aware, our nation is experiencing major supply chain issues, especially in the food service industry. Most of our local food distributors are also experiencing driver shortages, and have cut back their delivery routes drastically.
Because of this, only one food distributor is servicing our school district this year. That distributor is experiencing product shortages due to all of Fulton and Montgomery County schools getting their food from the one source, as well as the products not arriving from the manufacturers.
This is to let you know that due to these facts we are being shorted many products, and aren’t aware of it until the truck arrives. There are going to be frequent menu changes. Please know that students will not always be receiving the items that were published on the menus. Menu changes will be posted on our website weekly. This is an unfortunate circumstance of these challenging times and I apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you in advance for your understanding!

All Canajoharie Central School District students can receive free breakfast and lunch
All students enrolled in the Canajoharie Central School District, regardless of family income, can receive free breakfast and lunch during the school year as the district is now part of the federal Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).
Students who wish to receive free meals simply report to their building’s cafeteria. No application is required in the first year of the CEP.
If you would like a PDF copy of the menus below, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our school participates in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) under the National School Lunch Program. Under CEP, all students receive a free breakfast and lunch each day, for the entire school year.
However, to determine eligibility to receive other additional benefits, such as assistance with college course fees and other school program fees, families need to complete a Household Income Form. This form also helps the school to qualify for special grants and funds.
- Do I need to fill out a form for each child? No. Use one Household Income Form for all students living in your household.
- My child(ren) already receive free meals at school, why should I complete this form? Many state and federal programs use household income information to determine eligibility for their programs. By completing this form, our school is able to determine eligibility for additional programs that benefit everyone.
- Who should I include as members of my household? You must include all people living in your household, related or not, who share income and expenses. You must include yourself and all children living with you. You do not have to include other people living with you who are financially independent.
- What if my income is not always the same? List the amount that you normally receive. If you normally get overtime, include it, but do not include overtime if you only get it occasionally.
- What do I do with the form, once it’s complete? Return the form to the main office of either building – by dropping it off, sending it with a student, mailing, or emailing. Elementary students may return it to their classroom teacher.
If you have any questions about this Household Income Eligibility Form, please contact Lauri Broady at 518-673-6346 or email@example.com.
