Sachem School Lunch

Welcome back! We are looking forward to a great school year!

We are happy to inform the community that breakfast and lunch will be free for
all students this school year.

Providing the students of the Sachem Community with healthy, nutritious and delicious meals is the number one priority of Sachem Food Services. All of our meals continue to be certified in compliance with the strict age-appropriate nutrient guidelines put forth by the NY State Department of Education and the USDA.
As we have been preparing for our school nutrition program to return to normal service and menus, we are facing unprecedented supply chain challenges. This is a national issue and just like others in the food service industry we are unfortunately feeling the effects. We expect that there may be the need to alter our menus with little or no notice.

We will continue to work with our manufacturers, distributors and farm partners to supply both food and other supplies. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate these challenges.

Applications for free/reduced meals are not required, but having an approved application on file may provide you with additional benefits. Please fill out an application if you feel that you would meet the approval guidelines.
