A school lunch program is sponsored by the Greece Christian School. As we are a USDA-approved/certified kitchen families that meet the federal income eligibility guidelines may complete and submit the 2022-2023 Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals to the school office. (Once released by the state for 2022-23 GCS will have a link to these forms here).
Students may choose to bring their own lunch and purchase milk, juice, or snacks. Hot lunches are ordered daily from and prepared by the Greece Athena cafeteria and are served at GCS. Parents can use the FACTS management system to put funds on their child's lunch account.
Menus are provided on a monthly basis and consist of the regular entree, a combination, grilled cheese, or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Any student planning on buying a lunch at the school cafeteria must indicate so during attendance at their homeroom. Different systems are used in different grades to order lunch. Should a student arrive at school after attendance has been sent to the office he must order a lunch via the school office at the time he is dropped off. No child will go without a lunch should they not bring or fail to order. A lunch will be provided for them (unless they refuse it), and the parent will be notified as to the cost. Milk and snacks can be purchased at the snack table in the cafeteria. Parents are to be advised that: the cafeteria does not have provision to heat up or keep student lunches cold at school, and that due to health concerns, energy drinks and soda are not to be consumed while at school. Parents can check the lunch accounts in the Family Portal.
