2022-2023 School Lunch program

Information regarding the 2022-2023 School Lunch Program
We have been informed by the New York State Department of Education Child Nutrition Program Administration Office that the temporary COVID pandemic related federal free meal program for all students will no longer be available for the 2022/2023 school year starting this September.  Schools within our district will now resort to the pre-pandemic process of determining eligibility for free and reduced-price meals on an individual basis.  Families must now complete a new 2022/23 Free and reduced-Price Meal Application.  Applications that were filed and qualified for the prior 2021/22 school year will expire at the end of September 2022.  Families may be directly certified for free and reduced-price meals through SNAP and TANF.  To ensure that all families who may qualify for assistance receive the meal benefits, we are encouraging all families to file an applications for the 2022/23 school year.

For those families who are deemed to be ineligible, the Mount Sinai Union free district offers MySchoolBucks.  This online payment service provides a quick and easy way to add money to your students meal account using a credit/debit card or electronic check.  You can view recent purchases , check balances, and set-up low balance alerts.
