    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 daily.

    We are pleased to announce that we will be implementing a meal certification option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for 2022-23.

    Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)/Provision 2 non-base year Household Income Eligibility Form

    All students enrolled are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at no charge to your household each day of the 2022-2023 school year.  It is important that households complete the income form in order to determine additional state and federal program benefits that your child might qualify for.

    If you have any further questions, please contact us at 845-577-6582 or ccernaro@ercsd.org.
