With the start of the 2022-23 school year upon us, the Arkport Central School District food services department has been hard at work, designing new menu choices and interesting offerings. When Arkport students return to school, they will see some exciting and appetizing changes in the cafeteria.

To get their day started the right way, students can enjoy hot or cold breakfast options in the cafeteria. Breakfast will no longer be served in classrooms. 

Every other Thursday the cafeteria will feature a “Try-It” menu. This program will give students the opportunity to try new foods and menu items. By sampling an assortment of seasonally-varied, healthy and nutritious foods, students will have the chance to broaden their diet and develop a taste for new dishes. This program kicks off Thursday, September 15.

Starting in October, a fresh sub and wrap line will be on the menu. Every Tuesday and Thursday, students in grades 6-12 will have the choice of made-to-order, great tasting subs and wraps. In the coming months, this offering will be expanded to other grades as well.

While these changes are exciting and are certain to be very tasty, all student favorites – including pizza – will still be available.

Reminder: school meal programs across the county have returned to pre-pandemic procedures for the 2022-23 school year. This means breakfast and lunch are no longer free to all students; eligibility is based on income. To determine eligibility, please complete a Free and Reduced Meal Application.
