FREE Breakfast & Lunch
The Food Service Staff at Cuba-Rushford would like to welcome all our students, parents, community members, teachers and administrators. It is our goal to provide the best service, the highest quality of food, and win the trust of our students along the way. We want our customers to have an excellent experience in both the Primary Café (Age 3-Grade 5) and the Rebel Grill (Grades 6-12).
All students receive FREE meals in school for the 2016-17 School year
On the first day of classes in September 2016, Cuba-Rushford School District began providing school meals to all students eating at Cuba-Rushford under the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program. CEP is a provision from the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 that allows schools with high poverty rates to provide free breakfast and lunch to students regardless of household income. This letter was sent to all parents in August 22nd. Here is a link to the letter with some questions and answers (Q & A). Click here.
Note: CEP requires the school to provide a complete meal. Individual items, additional items or second meals are not included under the program.
==> IMPORTANT: CEP does not eliminate the need to complete the Community Eligibility Provision Household Income Eligibility form. All families should complete the form (unless they receive SNAP, Medicaid or TANF benefits) and turn it into the building secretary.

No Charge Policy
The school district in 2013 adopted a 'NO CHARGE' policy. Students are not able to take a meal if they do not have money in their lunch account or cash on hand.
We now have more options to allow you to place money on your child(ren)’s account(s):
Students, who do not have money on their account, will be given a basic meal that meets the NY State and Federal requirements (Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich and water.) Students who receive free lunches under the Free and Reduced Lunch Program will not be affected. Students who receive a reduced pricing will need to fund their account as indicated above. It is very difficult for students, especially elementary students, when they are not able to purchase a lunch. Please help us avoid this situation by carefully developing a weekly or monthly plan with your child.
Should your child (ren) not have money in their account for more than three days, the following process will be followed:
