All students attending McGraw Central School District will be given a free breakfast and lunch, regardless of income in the 2020-21 school year.
The School District applied for the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) through the New York State Department of Education Child Nutrition Program and were pleased to find out they were accepted.
Every student will automatically be eligible for the free meals, and there is no application that any family needs to complete.
McGraw Central School District believes that one of the most important ways in which we can help our children perform better in their classroom is to provide them with a nutritious breakfast and lunch.
Parents can limit access to ala carte items by filling out the Account Restriction Form.
McGraw Central Schools follows a traditions meal pattern system to ensure that the necessary vitamins, nutrients, protein and calories are offered in a week of planned menus. Breakfast offerings include two servings of grains, or one grain and one protein, one serving of fruit or fruit juice, and one serving of milk. Students are required to take a minimum of 3 items for breakfast. Lunch includes one serving of meat/meat alternate, one serving of grain/bread, two servings of vegetables and/or fruits, and one serving of milk. Students should take a minimum of three items but may take all five offerings. As an alternate to the main entrée, peanut butter and jelly or a sandwich choice is available daily. Chef salads are also available daily at the high school building.
