About Food Services at Byron-Bergen Schools:
Food Based Menu Planning
The Byron-Bergen Central School District participates in the USDA Food Based Menu Planning program. Breakfast meets one-fourth of the student’s Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA). Lunch meets one-third of a student’s RDA.
We encourage prepayment utilizing our on-line payment system MySchoolBucks.com. Prepayments may be used for all full and reduced price breakfasts and lunches, and for aIa carte items. If you wish to designate prepayments for meals only, contact the Food Service Department in the building your child attends.
I forgot my lunch money! Due to the enactment of the Prohibition Against Food Shaming Program, policies on charging lunch have changed. For full details please read the Meal Charge and Prohibition Against Meal Shaming Plan.
The Free/Reduced Meals Program is based on family income. To ensure that your child, if eligible, receives a free/reduced price meal, you must fill out a new application annually. The application must be completed and filed in the District Office within 30 operating days of the beginning of school. We cannot serve your child free or reduced meals after the 30 days without an approved application.
Only one application is necessary for each family. (Application is available above.)
