Student Meal Prices

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended a program that will provide free meals to all Menands students until December 31, or until available funding expires. The program was established to help ensure children have access to school meals during the COVID pandemic.

Families who may qualify for the Free and Reduced Price Meal Program are still encouraged to submit applications for the 2020-21 school year. Those who qualify will receive meals at no charge through the end of the school year.
