Food Service


Minerva Central School now offers breakfast and lunch at no charge to all students based on our recent approval of the federally sponsored Community Eligibility Provision meal program.

A very brief survey must be completed by each family. If additional information is needed, you will be contacted directly by the school. Ala carte items will continue to be available for purchase. The cafeteria manager works hard to plan a varied menu that is both nutritious and delicious. Parents may opt to send a packed lunch with their children at any time. Packed lunches are for the students who bring them and are not to be shared. As per state guidelines and MCS wellness policy, student lunches must not contain soda or candy. Parents are urged to avoid packing snack items and opt for healthier items such as fruit and vegetables.

Lunches for field trips will also be made available at no cost.

All food and beverages should be consumed in the cafeteria. Students should report to the cafeteria during their assigned meal times, and will not be permitted to remain in classrooms. Order and respectful behavior is expected, as are appropriate table manners.

The cafeteria and custodial staff, in addition to fellow students, appreciate student cooperation in:
  • Disposing of gum before entering the cafeteria.
  • Placement of all litter in the wastebasket.
  • Return all trays and utensils to the dishwashing area.
  • Leaving the table and floor around tables in clean condition.
