Sachem School Lunch 

Hello Sachem Families. Welcome back to school!

Providing the students of the Sachem Community with healthy, nutritious and delicious meals is the number one priority of Sachem Food Services.  All of our meals continue to be certified in compliance with the strict age-appropriate nutrient guidelines put forth by the NY State Department of Education and the USDA.

Please join us for Breakfast and Lunch!  Breakfast is $1.50 for all students. Lunch is $2.45 for elementary students and $2.75 for secondary students.  

Applications that were approved for free / reduced lunch for last school year will expire mid October 2023. To ensure that all families who may qualify for assistance receive the meal benefits, we are encouraging all families to file an application for the 2023/2024 school year. The application for Assistance for Free and Reduced Price Meals is available on the district’s website at . Paper copies will be available in school and districts offices.

We encourage families to use our online payment system, Payschools Central. This online payment service provides a quick and easy way to add money to your student’s meal account using a credit/debit card or electronic check. You can view recent purchases, check balances, and set-up low balance alerts. You can read more about Payschools Central here - You can access the Payschools Central website at

Give the Foodservice Department a call if you have questions or need assistance at 631-471-1353. We are looking forward to a great school year!
