May 2 declared "School Lunch Hero
Superintendent Corr signed a
proclamation declaring May 2 "School Lunch Hero Day"
throughout the district, to show appreciation for the
men and women who prepare healthy school meals and
interact with students on a daily basis.
Summer Feeding Sites
We all need healthy food to play hard,
when school lets out many low-income children and teens (18
years younger) lose access to the school breakfasts and
lunches that they receive during the regular school year.
Find a healthy summer meal, at no cost to you, at
www.summermealsny.org. It’s the food that is in while
school is out. Eat healthy meals, exercise your body and
mind-see you in September for a successful school year.
Application for Free or Reduced-Price
Applications for free or reduced-price
student meals are available at the Food Service Office located
inside the district office. To access an application online,

School meal changes enacted
As a result of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act
– championed by the First Lady and signed into law by President
Obama in 2010 – students will see major changes to their school
meals in the coming school year. »
Pre-Paid Meal Accounts
Pre-Pay for Meals
For your convenience we offer pre-paid meals
to our students. Pre-paid meal prices for elementary students
are $37 and for junior high and high school students they are
$42. Our cafeterias have a computerized system that gives each
student a PIN (personal identification number.) Money can be
placed into their private account for them to access for meals.
For each $42/$37 ($5 with reduced application on file)
student that is paid into their account, one (1) bonus meal will
be given. If paying by check, please make the check payable to
North Colonie Food Service. This system is easy for students to
use and eliminates worries about having the correct change in
the morning or losing money.
Pay for Meals Online Too!
The North Colonie Food Service Department
offers all parents a secure and convenient way to pay for your
child's meals. You will need your
child’s PIN to set up the account. Once an account is in place
you can view from home your child’s daily balance. Go to
www.paypams.com to set up an account today!
