Summer EBT information for district families

District students who are approved for Federal Free or Reduced Lunch in the 2023-2024 school year will receive $120 in Summer EBT funds in the form of a physical EBT card from the State of NJ. If you have not applied for F/R lunch yet and think you may be eligible, please click here to apply. This is a new, permanent, program aimed to reduce childhood hunger by providing families with a grocery benefit to feed their children while on summer break.



Please check out the program we'll be using to share our menus and nutritional information with you. Nutrislice will be updated any time we have a menu change and will have menus prepared weeks in advance. You can even add the app to your phone for up to date information.

The district may not know the exact ingredients used in the preparation of food and beverage items served within the school lunch program and/or by parent and school organizations.  Every effort is made to instruct our food production staff on the severity of food allergies.  In accordance with the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act, the major allergen ingredients of milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soybeans, wheat, and shellfish are to be identified on food labels.  However, food manufactures are not required to declare these same allergenic ingredients which may be introduced through cross contact.  Cross contact/contamination may occur during harvesting, transportation, manufacturing, processing, and storage. 

While these ingredient lists are available, there is no guarantee of the absence of these major food allergens. In addition, based upon vendor availability, food products may be substituted with similar brands without notice. The parent/guardian of a student with anaphylaxis to food is responsible for their child’s purchase and consumption of any food product sold or provided by the school and needs to be aware of the potential hazards associated with the consumption of food not provided from the home.
