School Meals 2020-21
Welcome to Trumansburg Child Nutrition 2020
Here is an update for families and staff on some of the changes that are happening this year in our School Food program:
For the safety of all, meals will be packaged and served in the classroom. Meals will also be available for pick-up for those who are attending school at home or attending in the hybrid model.
For both situations, meals will be pre-ordered online. If you don’t have access to the internet, we will help you order meals. We ask that you please order for the whole week by the Thursday of the previous week. A new ordering link will be up each Wednesday. The link can be found on the the School Nutrition website.
Due to a special program for this year, breakfast and lunch will be offered free to all students. We can only serve whole meals, not individual items.
All lunches come with vegetables, fruit and optional milk. Breakfast comes with white milk and fruit or juice.
Meal pick-up is on Friday at 12:30pm. If you need meals and are unable to pick-up, we will find a way to get meals delivered to you.
We hope to continue our Farm to School program and source as many foods locally as we can.
All this could change. We appreciate your patience and welcome your questions and suggestions during these challenging times at email@example.com.

School Meals Overview
Breakfast and Lunch are served daily in all three buildings and are available to all students.
Prepayment of Breakfast and Lunch is encouraged and appreciated. You may pay by the week, month, semester, or yearly. Your check should be made payable to Trumansburg School Lunch Fund. If sending payment with elementary children, be sure your child’s name and grade level are on the envelope; other notes to office or teacher should be separate from the lunch payment envelope.
A new free/reduced application needs to be done each school year. We will accept new free/reduced applications at any time during the school year. If you have any questions, call Torie at 387-7551 X4489
If your child has food allergies that you need the School Nutrition Dept. to know about and make diet adjustments for, please forward a physician's statement to School Nutrition Department. The medical statement must include the following:
1) an identification of the medical or other special dietary condition that restricts the child's diet
2) the food or foods to be omitted from the child's diet
3) the food or choice of foods to be substituted.
Student Account Information
The School Nutrition Department has a computerized cash register system.
Each student has a Personal Identification Number (PIN).
This is a pre-payment account, so parents need to plan to make deposits on his/her account to keep it current.
When making a deposit with a check, please write students name and PIN in the memo section of your check. Make checks payable to: Trumansburg Food Service
If making a deposit with cash, send cash payment in a sealed envelope with student’s full name and grade level marked on front of the envelope.
Students who qualify for free/reduced price meals will be coded so the meal will be charged to his/her account for each transaction. This system helps protect the privacy of the students receiving free or reduced-price meals.
We have a Auto Message Phone Service that will call you on Monday, Wednesday and Friday if your child(s) account is - $ .01 to - $ 10.00.
You may call the building cashier to check a balance at any time. Please phone (607) 387- 7551 X4489 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any question about your student's account.
