USDA Free Meal Program Ending

The Federal child nutrition waivers that allowed all students access to free meals ended on June 30, 2022.  This means that West Genesee CSD will no longer be able to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students for the 2022-2023 school year.

Families who qualify for free or reduced price meals must complete a meal application for the 2022-2023 school year and meet income qualifications in order to receive free meals.  Households who do not qualify will need to resume paying for breakfast and lunch.

Meal applications can be submitted online here.

If you are unable to complete the application online, a copy will be mailed to families in August.

 Meal prices for 2022-2023: Breakfast $2.00; Lunch $3.00

        Food Service Updates

        Food Allergy Information

        Your child’s safety is important to us. To ensure that The West Genesee Food Service Department is aware of your child’s particular dietary restrictions, such as allergies or diabetes, it is necessary for the parent or guardian of the child to submit a doctor’s note to the school nurse every year.

        You need to give permission to the nurse to release the information to the Food Service Department. This is to comply with the HIPAA Privacy Rule.  Please send in a parent letter and documentation from a medical authority stating the foods that are potentially dangerous or life threatening.

        If your child is lactose intolerant, a signed medical note from your physician (required by the state) must be on file in order for an alternative drink to be offered in place of milk. This must be a medical condition, not a preference and does not apply to á la carte food sales.
