School Lunch Overview
 
The Baldwinsville Central School District Food Service Department provides nutritious, cost effective meals to our students and staff each day. Our Child Nutrition (CN) Programs include the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP). The guidelines and funding are provided through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Reviews of our Food Service programs are conducted by the CN Division of the New York State Education Department on a regular basis. Each meal is analyzed for its nutritional content and adherence to the appropriate USDA guideline.
 
Baldwinsville Central School Food Service Department is a self sustaining business within the School District. What this means is that most expenses related to School Lunch are paid for with the revenue generated from the sale of meals, USDA reimbursement and ala carte sales.
 
Typical expenses for the Food Service Department include: Food Service salaries, benefits and insurance, food cost, equipment purchases and repair and maintenance. Most purchases are done through cooperative bid managed by BOCES. Some of the bid categories are groceries, paper and plastic, milk, ice cream and smallwares.
 
Families may fill out an application for Free and Reduced meals at any time. Income guidelines are established annually by the USDA, applications are included with the annual District mailing during the summer, prior to the start of the school year. Additional applications are available at the Food Service office located in the District Office.

 Any questions relating to the School Lunch program can be directed to Brian Wright, School Lunch Director, at (315)638-6063 or bwright@bville.org.
