Food Service

The F-M School District believes that one of the most important ways in which we can help our children perform better in their classrooms, is to provide them with the nutrition necessary for the healthy growth of their minds and bodies.

We offer breakfast and/or lunch in our schools every day. We invite all students to show their support for their school food service program through frequent participation. Our school meal program is entirely self-supported through cafeteria sales.

During the 2021-22 school year, additional funding from the federal government allowed schools nationwide to offer all students, regardless of their family’s income, free breakfast and lunch while at school.  

Because that funding was discontinued as of June 2022, school districts, including the Fayetteville-Manlius School District, must transition back to charging students for school meals and requiring the formal application process for students to participate in the National School Lunch Program, which is the federally assisted program that allows eligible students to receive free or reduced-price school meals. 

If you have suggestions or recommendations for the improvement of our program, please contact Food Service Manager Adam Jarosz at 315-692-1809.
