Cafeteria & Food Services

Attention Parents/Guardians - GOOD NEWS!!!

     The DeRuyter Central School District is committed to high levels of learning for all students. We strive to provide engaging and equitable learning environments for everyone. In an effort to ensure that all students are afforded an optimal learning environment, the district will provide breakfast and lunch at no cost to all students in grades PK -12th .
     Continuing in September 2023, the District will again be participating in the Community Eligibility Provision part of the The Healthy and Hungry Free Kids Act which is a federally-funded program. The savings to our families are significant.
     Students will still use their 4 digit Lunch Pin Numbers as they come thru the Breakfast and Lunch lines.  A la carte options and second meals are not free and will still be available for students.  These items can be purchased using cash or My School Bucks account.
     Please help us to continue to obtain and be eligible for additional programs provided by the state and federal government that benefit your child by filling out the Household Income paperwork (located below in the "Downloads" section of this page) and returning it on the first day of school.
     As always please feel free to call or stop by the cafeteria with any questions or concern’s.

Thank You!
