Cornell School District offers the At-Risk Aftershool Meals component of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) for afterschool programs that serve a meal or snack to school-age children in low-income areas.
If your child stays after school for any type of program, they are eligible to receive dinner that is served between 3:30 PM and 4:00 PM in the cafeteria. Participation is open to all students regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.
The district receives Federal funding for serving nutritious meals. The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), and agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) oversees CACFP.
In accordance with federal civil rights law and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) civil rights regulations and policies, the USDA, its Agencies, offices, and employees, and institutions participating in or administering USDA programs are prohibited from discriminating based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity in any program or activity conducted or funded by USDA.
Persons with disabilities who require alternative means of communication for program information (e.g., Braille, large print, audiotape, American Sign Language), should contact the agency (state or local) where they applied for benefits. Individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or have speech disabilities may contact USDA through the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877-8339. Additionally, program information may be made available in languages other than English.
