A message from Food Services

Healthy school meals are the first ingredient in a great education. Add us to your menu.

We strongly believe that good nutrition is an essential ingredient in any student's school success. Our program offers quality meals that exceed the Healthy-free Kid Act regulations. We offer a wide range of options to meet your child's wants. Whole grains, fresh fruit and assorted vegetable are offered every day. Our program is always on the lookout for new delicious and nutritious ideas to add to our menus.

Cobleskill-Richmondville Central School District has been approved to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision which allows all students to eat one breakfast and one lunch each day at no charge.

A breakfast consists of four component and a lunch consists of five components. For both breakfast and lunch, three components must be chosen and one must be a fruit or vegetable. 

A la carte items will still be available for purchase, however any student with a negative balance is not allowed to purchase a la carte items until the balance is paid.

Our district utilizes an online payment and account information service. Please visit for sign up or more information. Snack milk and juice is a separate program and is still cash only.

Thank you for your continued support of C-R's Food Service Program, a vital ingredient in your child's education and well being.

Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
