What’s for Breakfast and Lunch?

This summer, free breakfast and free lunch are available to kids in St. Lawrence County.

All children 18 years of age or younger are eligible to access free meals through the Summer Nutrition Program, which is offered by several participating school districts in partnership with the St. Lawrence-Lewis BOCES Central Food Management Service.

The nearest school districts offering this program are Edwards-Knox, Gouverneur and Clifton-Fine. Please see the image below for specific dates and hours. Families may visit any site in our region (regardless of home address) to have a free breakfast and/or lunch.

Meal prices and payment information

Starting Nov. 1, 2023, breakfast and lunch are FREE for all students for the remainder of the 2023-24 school year.

This implementation is a result of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) expanding access to the federal Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). CEP allows eligible schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs to offer school meals at no charge to all students.

Effective Nov. 1, 2023, all students enrolled at Harrisville Central School will receive meals at no cost. No further action is required of district families.

If families have any questions, they are asked to contact Christine Bristol, Cafeteria Manager, at (315) 543-2707.

Harrisville Central School utilizes a convenient and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child’s school meal account. This service also provides parents the ability to view your child’s account balance through a web site called www.MySchoolBucks.com. To access these services, you will need create your account and add money to your child’s school meal account. Information for creating this account can be found on the www.MySchoolBucks.com website or by contacting Christine Bristol, Food Services Manager, at (315) 543-2707.

Free and Reduced-Price Meals

Children from households that meet federal income guidelines are eligible for free meals or reduced price meals.  Reduced price meals are free for eligible student, for both breakfast and lunch. Each eligible student is entitled to one breakfast and one lunch per day. Families can apply for free/reduced meal benefits at any time during the school year.

Prohibition Against Meal Shaming

It is the district’s goal to provide students with access to nutritious no-cost or low-cost meals each school day and to ensure that a student whose parent/guardian has unpaid meal charges is not shamed or treated differently than a student whose parent/guardian does not have unpaid meal charges.
