February Menu:

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 the communications department.

Dear Parent/Guardian:

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 Susan Frank at 518-464-5133 or email susan.frank@neric.org

Sincerely,
School District Administration
