We are happy to announce that the United States Department of Agriculture has extended a program allowing us to offer breakfast and lunch to all Greenport UFSD students at no charge.
All students will be allowed a breakfast and a lunch, each day, at no cost through June 30, 2024.
As such, NO MONEY IS NEEDED FOR BREAKFAST AND LUNCH FROM PARENTS.
Additionally, it is important to complete and return the attached Free and Reduced Meal Application that was also previously sent with your Welcome Packet if you fall into the income category based on the size of your household listed in the Income Eligibility Guidelines Chart. This is due by September 17 each year and can be dropped off at the front office, mailed in, or sent in with your child. It is extremely important to complete and return this application to us so that we may continue to be eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch for all students here at Greenport.
Parents may continue to send money in with their children or place money in their “MySchoolBucks” accounts to use for purchasing additional items such as snacks and milk. There is a link on our website which will enable you to use a credit card to place money onto your child’s personal account. Go to “District” then to “Food Service” then to “MySchoolBucks.”
Please call the Business Office with any questions at 631-477-1950 extension 1203. Again, thank you for your attention in completing and returning the attached Free and Reduced Meal Application so we can continue to provide this at no charge to all families.
Yours very truly,
Dr. Philip Kenter
