Please complete the Income Eligibility Form (below) and return to school. By doing so, it allows the school to continue to provide the free breakfast and lunch for all students. It will grant the school district more aid thus saving our local taxpayers money.

McGraw Central School District believes that one of the most important ways in which we can help our children perform better in their classroom is to provide them with a nutritious breakfast and lunch.
Parents can limit access to ala carte items by filling out the Account Restriction Form.
McGraw Central Schools follows a traditional meal pattern system to ensure that the necessary vitamins, nutrients, protein, and calories are offered in a week of planned menus. Breakfast offerings include two servings of grains, or one grain and one protein, one serving of fruit or fruit juice, and one serving of milk. Students are required to take a minimum of 3 items for breakfast. Lunch includes one serving of meat/meat alternate, one serving of grain/bread, two servings of vegetables and/or fruits, and one serving of milk. Students should take a minimum of three items but may take all five offerings. As an alternate to the main entrée, peanut butter and jelly or a sandwich choice is available daily. Chef salads are also available daily at the high school building.
