Breakfast and lunch are now available at no charge to all students in the Mayfield Central School District, making it easier for students to stay nourished so they perform at their best during the school day.
Families can take advantage of these nutritious meals on days students are in school and when they are participating remotely. The free meals will continue for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year.
In addition to in-school meals, parents can pick up meals for their remote learners as an easy way to serve breakfast and lunch at home on remote learning days. The schedule is as follows:
- Gold Group will pick-up on Monday and Tuesday.
- Blue Group will pick-up on Thursday and Friday.
- Parents will drive to the drop-off circle at the Elementary School to pick up meals from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Students will have their choice of peanut butter and jelly, ham or turkey sandwiches or a yogurt meal. Ham and turkey will only be available while supplies last.
Meals will be delivered on Wednesdays to those children whose parents have signed up for it through Food Service Manager Lindsay Van Auken.
Getting school meals may not only mean fewer trips to the grocery store, but not having to pack and prepare meals each day also saves parents time.
For those learning remotely, school meals may give them a taste of something familiar, and perhaps a chance to have some of their favorite foods from school.
