About Food Services

Goshen offers breakfast and lunch to all students. We serve more than 1,400 reimbursable - complete lunches per day.

In addition, eating a good breakfast is beneficial to our students. In fact, the USDA has determined that eating breakfast helps improve math, reading and standardized test scores; improves memory and performance; and decreases behavioral issues.

Like lunch, breakfast is served each day. If there is a two-hour delay, breakfast will not be served. Lunch will be served each full day, even on a three-hour delay.

To save time, we encourage you to pre-pay for your student's meals by placing money on the student’s account. For more information, visit the Prepaid Cash Accounts page.

MySchoolBucks, our new online school meal payment system

My School Bucks logoIn September 2016, the Goshen Central School District began using MySchoolBucks, a secure, online payment system that allows parents to quickly deposit money into their child’s school meal account at their own convenience.

Free- and reduced-price meal applications

Free and reduced-price meals are available to children who meet Federal guidelines. Applications are located in the center of the school calendar and are listed below in Adobe PDF format. Only one application is needed per family.

Applications for the 2016-17 school year should be submitted by October 1. Students who received benefits during the prior school year will continue to receive benefits until October 14. Completed applications should be returned to the Food Service Department or a school nurse.

Please be sure to check out the links on the right-hand column. They will provide more information about our program, such as menus and student accounts.

If you have any questions please contact the Food Service Department at (845) 615-6490.

Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act

In January 2012, at the direction of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act passed by Congress, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) published a final rule to promote the health of America’s school children. The rule establishes new, science-based nutrition standards for the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs.1 These standards are based on the recommendations of doctors, nutritionists, and other experts, and are designed to ensure that taxpayer-funded school meals reinforce the efforts of parents who are trying to instill their children with healthy eating habits and lifestyles in the face of the nation’s growing child obesity epidemic.

The new standards identify the healthy ranges for five categories of food--fruits, vegetables, grains, meats or meat alternatives, and fluid milk--as well as the healthy ranges for total calories, saturated and trans fat, and sodium. For the grains and the meats/meat alternates components there are science-based, age appropriate daily minimum quantities, as well as weekly minimum and maximum quantities for total calories.

Goshen School’s submission of certification documentation for January 2013 was approved as meeting the interim rule as set forth in this Act.
