General Food Services Information-
● Free & Reduced meal applications must be re-submitted every year before October 15th to avoid a disruption in meal eligibility. Applications can be completed electronically through family.titank12.com and printed copies are available at all school offices or you can access a printable copy on our website at www.corinthcsd.org under the Food Services department. New York State is still covering the reduced meal fee of $ .25, so if you are approved for reduced meals, they are essentially free.
● We strongly recommend setting up a student account on family.titank12.com to make deposits for your student. We will not be accepting cash at the register at the time of meal purchases, however, you may send money in a sealed envelope with your student’s name, directed to the Cafeteria and we will deposit the funds at a later time.
● Students may still bring in their own breakfast and lunch from home
● There is no sharing of food allowed
● Menus have reduced options due to the several serving methods and limitations
● Menus are subject to change due to COVID-19 shortages.
● At this time, we will not be selling snacks or ice cream to grades K-8. We may possibly add it later in the year schedule permitting.
For any questions, please contact Lisa Tevendale at (518) 654-9005 extension 3114 or email email@example.com
Child Nutrition Program
The mission of the Child Nutrition Program is to provide students with access to food that is appealing, healthy, acceptable, and prepared by compassionate and caring people. We manage our program in a nutritionally and financially accountable manner. We take a proactive approach by applying the dietary guidelines set forth in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. We believe every child will have the same opportunity to enjoy the benefits of effective Child Nutrition Programs with healthy food choices provided in pleasant surroundings.
Our district participates in the National School Lunch Program and follows a traditional meal pattern – Offer Versus Serve. Students are offered a meal consisting of five major components to the meal, which include protein, fruits, vegetables, grains, and fluid milk. Students must take at least three components and one must be a fruit or vegetable. We encourage students to take all five components for a nutritious, well-rounded meal.
These guidelines apply to all meals regardless of whether a student receives free lunch, a reduced-price lunch, or pays full price. A la carte prices will be charged when the necessary components are not taken. Meals are offered at low cost to encourage participation in the program.

Free & Reduced Meals
*Extended FOR 2021-22 SCHOOL YEAR*
Corinth Central School is pleased to announce that all enrolled students will receive free meals through an extended waiver from the USDA. Free meals for students were extended through the 2021-22 school year. We are offering Breakfast in the Classroom for grades K-8. A signup sheet will need to be returned to the cafeteria for the student to receive meals each morning. This will help us maintain consistent numbers to prepare for. High School students will be offered a breakfast meal upon entering each morning at our Grab-n-Go Cafe in the High School lobby.
***It is still very important to submit a Free & Reduced meal application so your student's eligibility status does not lapse when meals go back to regular student pricing.***
Free and Reduced Meals
Children need to eat healthy meals in order to learn. With today’s economy and some households enduring financial stress, it is nice to know that your children may be able to eat nutritious meals at school for free or at a reduced price. All you have to do is fill out the 2021-22 Free and Reduced Meal application [PDF] and return it to:
Mrs. Lisa Tevendale, Cafeteria Manager
105 Oak Street
Corinth, NY 12822

The application is available in languages other than English, just let us know. We can also help you fill out the form if you need it.
You do not have to worry about anyone knowing how much your children pay for breakfast or lunch; it is confidential. Our TITAN School Solution system allows students to enter their student ID numbers to pay for meals, so no one knows if their meals are free, reduced rate or full-priced.
