Meal distribution plan

March 17, 2020

To All Byron-Bergen Bees’ Families:

Byron-Bergen Central School District has applied to the New York State Child Nutrition Office and received approval to provide meals to all Byron-Bergen School children ages 3 through 18 at no cost.  We are very pleased to be able to offer these meals to our students.  The District will begin distributing two (2) non-perishable daily meals beginning on Monday, March 23, 2020

This program is designed to provide meals to our students while also abiding by suggested social distancing guidelines. To that effect, we are operating on the honor system. It is not necessary to bring your students with you for pickup. Additionally, picking up meals for neighbors students is allowed. We will just require you to give the names of the students you are picking meals up for. We trust that our community members will take only what they need to distribute to students.

The following is a detailed description of our food distribution plan:

-          Eligibility

o   Meals will be available for all students ages 3 through 18 who attend Byron-Bergen Schools. However, students need not be present at pick up.

-          Food Preparation

o   Cooks and selected food service staff will be deemed essential to prepare these meals.

o   Meal preparation will occur in the Junior/Senior High School Kitchen.

o   Meals will consist of non-perishable items and be bagged for distribution.

o   One (1) breakfast and one (1) lunch will be included in each bag.

-          Meal Distribution

o   Meals will be available for pick up in the Junior/Senior High School bus loop from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM Monday through Friday.  A preliminary menu is available on the school website; however, it may be subject to change.

o   A food service staff member will distribute bags directly to vehicles in the bus loop. Please do not get out of your vehicle.

o   Please remember, no students are allowed on the school campus.

-          Food Safety

o   Please contact Mary DellaPenna at 494-1220 ext 1015 or by email at [email protected]  if your student has a dietary restriction or food allergy.

o   Meals that are not consumed immediately are to be refrigerated.

All plans pertaining to our current public health matter may change at a moment's notice.  The District will communicate updates if necessary. 

Take care of each other,

Mickey Edwards

Superintendent of Schools
