  • Dear Middletown Families,
     We are pleased to inform Middletown Families, the Enlarged City School District of Middletown Schools will continue a meal
    certification option (CEP) available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for
    2019-2020 school year.
     What does this mean for every scholar attending the Enlarged City School of Middletown?
     All scholars enrolled in Enlarged City School District of Middletown Schools are eligible to receive a healthy Prefuel
    (breakfast) and Refuel (lunch) while in attendance, at no charge to your household each day of the 2019-2020 school year.
    No further action is required of you. Your scholar(s) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay

    Middletown scholars receive breakfast and lunch at no cost

     The Middletown school district will provide "Pre-fuel" (breakfast) and "Re-fuel" (lunch) for all scholars.
     Our nutrition program, “Middies Meals on the Move,” will continue to increase meal accessibility. Our classroom friendly ”Pre-fuel” menu provides well-balanced nutritious meals. The vending machines at our high school provide nutritional options.
     Middletown is committed to serving healthy meals that meet scholar nutritional needs within their calorie requirements.   
     Scholars can choose from a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fat-free and low-fat milk. Meals are moderate in sodium, low in saturated fat and have zero grams of trans fat per serving (nutrition label or manufacturers specification).
     Scholars can purchase ala carte items, such as water, chips, campus-made cookies and ice cream with cash or their secured account. Parents can make online payments into their student account through the parent portal. Pay with cash or checks at the registers. Adult sales by staff members, second meals and ala carte items cannot be charged.
     The Food & Nutrition department is expanding its menu and nutrition information access to parents and students by providing nutritional information and menus online through the meal viewer app. Check the website for more information.

    Well-nourished kids perform better in school and have increased problem-solving skills, memory, verbal fluency and creativity. That’s why at Middletown, where more than 7,000 meals are served daily, it’s not just important to serve top-quality meals to kids. It’s a priority. Since launching the Food Enhancement Plan, Middletown increased use of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables. In addition, meals are lower in fat, and provide balanced servings from each food group.
