East Greenbush CSD Receives Approval to Provide Free Meals to Four Eligible Schools
All students enrolled at Donald P. Sutherland Elementary School, Red Mill Elementary School, Howard L. Goff Middle School and the Questar III Sackett Center will be able to receive free breakfast and lunch meals at school beginning on December 1, 2023. This change is a result of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) expanding access to the federal Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) and increased funding from New York State.

We cannot approve an application that is not complete, so be sure to fill out all required information.
Verification Process for Free and Reduced Price Applicants

The District offers an online meal prepayment service through MySchoolBucks.com.

Charge Policy and Prohibition Against Shaming
The Board of Education recognizes that on occasion, students may forget to bring meal money to school. To ensure that students do not go hungry, but also to promote responsible student behavior and minimize the fiscal burden to the district, the Board will allow students who may forget meal money to “charge” the cost of meals to be paid back at a later date subject to the terms established in District policy #8505.
