Lunch Prices for 2022-2023

Students at the elementary and middle levels will now pay $2.70 for a school lunch, while students at the high school level will now pay $2.95. The price of milk will be 70 cents. The district will continue to offer universal breakfast, at no cost to students, in all LCSD buildings for the 2022-2023 school year.

Six Liverpool CSD Schools Receive Community Eligibility Provision Grant

The Liverpool Central School District Food Service Program is pleased to announce that Chestnut Hill Elementary, Chestnut Hill Middle, Donlin Drive Elementary, Liverpool Elementary, Liverpool Middle and Long Branch Elementary will participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) grant program during the 2022-2023 school year.

Beginning the first day of school (September 8), every student enrolled at those six schools will receive free breakfast and lunch each school day regardless of the family’s household income. Although milk is free with a full meal, a la carte milk (a milk that a student wishes to take without getting a school meal) will cost 70 cents.

CHE, CHM, DDE, LE, LMS and LBE are the only LCSD schools participating in the CEP Program this year.

Nourishing the Minds of the Future One Tray at a Time

The heart of the school beats in the kitchen, where education, nutrition, and customer service unite to enhance and inspire our future leaders: the students.

Liverpool Central School District values the connection between nutrition and student performance. Studies show that students who are well nourished have increased attendance, better grades, and are able to concentrate and perform at higher standards. Our school lunches are affordable, convenient and healthy!

The Liverpool Child Nutrition program adheres to the provisions of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, which calls for adding more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fat free milk products to school meals.

New Charging Policy:  

Student meals must be paid for at the time of purchase. However, in the instance that a student's account is depleted or they have forgotten their lunch money, a full meal of their choice will be offered and their account will be charged. Charges are expected to be paid back in full. Unpaid meal charges place a large financial burden on the District. The intent (see Superintendent's Regulation 5660) is to establish procedures to address unpaid meal charges in a way that does not stigmatize or embarrass students. Parent/guardians will be notified when student's account balance is exhausted and has accrued excessive charges. If you feel that you qualify for free or reduced meals and or need assistance, please call Food Service at 622-7172.
