Free and Reduced Lunch: St. Barnabas School does not participate in the National School Lunch Program and thus does not receive federal dollars to subsidize our cafeteria. However, we know many of our families need assistance in providing their children with a nutritious and delicious lunch while in our care. If your family income would qualify your child for free or reduced lunch, we can help. You will need to fill out an application annually. Please click the link below to fill out a lunch assistance application. Once completed, you can scan and send the form to our Foodservice Director, Terese Joyce, at firstname.lastname@example.org or have your child deliver it via their teacher. Our Lunch Assistance Fund covers one complete lunch with milk per child for those who qualify for free meals, Families qualifying for reduced lunches will pay $1.50 per day for the main, complete lunch with milk. Please Note: Additional entrees and a la carte items are not included and are the financial responsibility of the parent.
