FOOD SERVICE

Our cafeterias are managed by the Aramark Corporation which offers a breakfast and lunch program for all grades. 

Breakfast options include bagels, cereal, eggs (Middle/High School only), pancakes, string cheese, yogurt, fruit, milk and juice. 

The lunch program offers a variety of hot and cold lunch options, snacks and beverages.  In addition to our daily lunch special, every day we offer other options for our "picky-eaters".  These options include child-friendly food such as chicken tenders, pasta (with and without sauce), pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken patties.  We also offer a variety of a la carte options such as Boars Head cold-cut sandwiches and wraps, a salad bar, and desserts.  Our healthy options include our custom-made salad bar, hummus, Greek yogurt, and yogurt parfait.  You can find our monthly lunch menu on each school's website in the left area of the homepage.

Tuckahoe utilizes a point-of-sale system called "mySchoolBucks".  This program provides parents/guardians with the ability to add money to their student’s account and also monitor what they eat.  You can also find a link to the mySchoolBucks website on each school's website under the "Parent Resources" tab.
