Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Corinth has cancelled classes and closed buildings from March 16 to April 17. The district will, however, continue to feed its students.
Boxed breakfasts and lunches will be available starting Monday, March 16 from 9 to 10 a.m. We will have staff available on the loading dock located at the front of the Middle School who will distribute meals. The service is free to all Corinth Central School District students who are 18 years old or younger. If you would like to participate in this service but are unable to secure transportation to the school, please call 518-654-9005, ext. 3114 and we will try to make arrangements to deliver food to your household. Due to the volume of calls we are likely to receive, please be prepared to leave a message with the following information:
Age of each child in the household
The best possible time to drop off the boxed meals
Your home address
Your contact information
Any known allergies in the household
The CARE backpack program will also continue throughout this timeframe. Families involved in this program will be able to pick up backpacks on Friday, March 20 between 9 and 10.m. Again, if you are unable to secure transportation to the school, please call 518-654-9005, ext. 3114. [See Flyer Below]
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. Student's must take at least three components and one must be a fruit or vegetable. We encourage students to take all five component's 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.

Summer Meals Program
Children can enjoy free meals this summer at Corinth Elementary School.
The school will host the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program in cooperation with CAPTAIN Community Human Services. The free summer meals program is open to all children, ages 18 and younger. There are no residency or income requirements, and there is no need to register or RSVP — just visit the elementary school when lunch is being served.
Lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekdays at Corinth Elementary starting July 1 and continuing through Aug. 30, although no meals will be served on July 4. Sandwiches, salads, fresh fruit and cold milk will be available. Children and teens who participate in the program will have the chance to win a free bicycle.
