School lunches now include more fruits, vegetables, and whole grain-rich foods; only fat-free or low-fat milk; “right-size” meals with portions designed for a child’s age; and less saturated fat, trans fat, and sodium. The changes in school meals, the first in 15 years, are based on the latest nutritional guidelines.

Donald F.X. Keegan, the District’s Associate Superintendent for Business Services, who oversees food service programming, said, “We have been incredibly fortunate to have such a dedicated team of workers that adapted to our District’s changing needs this past year. We are thankful for their tremendous efforts keeping our students fed despite the challenges. We are excited that we are now in a position to be able to bring more of our food service staff back into buildings as our instructional models shift to more in-person learning.”
The North Syracuse Central School District will continue its existing partnership with the USDA providing free meals for all students, whether remote or in-person.
