The federally funded free meals program which was enacted for all students in the spring of 2020 has expired. Byron-Bergen Central Schools will begin charging for meals again at the start of the 2022-23 school year. Breakfast will be served at a cost of $1.50 and lunch will be $2.30 at the Elementary School and $2.55 at the Jr./Sr. High School.
Although the funding for universal free meals has expired, many students still qualify for free or reduced-price meals through the New York State Education Department. Additionally, students who qualify for free or reduced-price meals will receive a no-cost snack through the Afterschool Snack Program.
Students paying for lunch can do so through a MySchoolBucks account. This service is used to prepay for any breakfast and lunch meals purchased at school as well as ala carte items such as snacks and drinks. If you choose to sign up for this service, you will need your student’s ID # which can be obtained by contacting the main office at the Elementary or Jr./Sr. High School. Students may also pay cash.
