East Ramapo Central School District believes that one of the most important ways in which we can help our children perform better in classrooms is to provide them with the nutrition necessary for the healthy growth of their minds and bodies. Therefore, we provide breakfast and lunch in our schools everyday. We invite all students to show their support for their school food service program through frequent participation.
Children from households that meet federal income guidelines (outlined below) are eligible for free meals or reduced price meals. Beginning July 1, 2019, students in New York State that are approved for reduced price meals will receive breakfast and lunch meals at no charge.
To apply for free or reduced price meals, submit a Direct Certification letter from the NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance OR complete the application below, sign it, and return it in the enclosed envelope or return it to the school as soon as possible.
Please refer to the guidelines contained in the letter below when completing the application. We cannot approve an application that is not complete, so be sure to fill out all required information
