All Teaneck children may eat lunch in school. In addition,
breakfast is available at all schools. Maschio’s Food Service has been
retained by the Board of Education as its food service management
Teaneck participates in the National Lunch Program
through which children may purchase low-cost lunches/breakfast and milk,
and may be eligible for free or reduced price meals. A la carte
offerings or a balanced complete meal are available at lunch and
breakfast. Students eligible for free or reduced price lunch qualify for
free or reduced price breakfast. Applications for free/reduced priced
meals are sent home with children the first day of school, and must be
returned by September 20, 2016. If you do not receive an application,
please call the school your child attends or you can now go into the
Teaneck website and download the lunch application. If you download the
application you still need to fill it out and send the application back
to the school your child attends.
Children who were
receiving free/reduced lunch/breakfast as of June 2016 will continue to
receive free/reduced price lunch/breakfast through the month of
September only. A new application must be filled out in order for them
to continue receiving their free/reduced lunch/breakfast after October
4. If a new application is not filled out by October 4, the free/reduced
benefits will be terminated.
The lunch price for K-4
children will be $2.65. Middle school students will pay $2.80 for lunch.
High school students will pay $3.15 for lunch. The reduced-price lunch
is 40 cents. A complete breakfast for K-4 students is $1.35, and $1.60
for those in grades 5-12. The reduced price is 30 cents. Deli sandwiches
are available at the high school. All the schools have salads, raisins
and nuts, fresh fruits and other nutritionally appropriate foods.
high school and middle schools use a personalized identification system
through which students scan their ID badges or use a PIN code to
purchase lunch/breakfast items. This enables them to buy items whether
using their pre-paid account or paying in cash.
