K12 Alert: Child Nutrition Program Overview 09-3-2019
The Croton-Harmon School District is excited to launch our district-wide lunch program ($3.75 per student meal) and breakfast service ($2.75 per student meal) at PVC and CHHS through our participation in the National Child Nutrition Program, effective September 9, 2019. Aramark Educational Services is our foodservice partner and we are grateful to have Christine Torregrossa serving as our Food Service Director.
Our goal is to serve nutritious, well-balanced meals that appeal to students and the school community that meet the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program requirements. Information on our standards can be accessed here.
The District utilizes a computerized POS (Point of Sale) system that stores student allergy information, if applicable. Please contact your child’s school nurse to ensure this information is up to date. NOTE: Student allergy information for CET and PVC students will not be available in this system until mid-September.
Online payments for food purchases may be made by establishing an account with MySchoolBucks.com. To establish an account, a student ID number is required which can be found on the eSchoolData Parent Portal or by contacting your child’s school office.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to call the Child Nutrition Services Department at 271-2191 ext 2690. Thank you for your interest and support of the School Meal Program.
