    The school meal program is operated in each building by the Oneida-Herkimer-Madison (OHM) BOCES School Food Service Program. OHM BOCES strives to provide students with tasty, nutritious, fresh, foods that appeal to students and the school community. We have continually exceeded federal and state guidelines for all required nutrients and increased our offerings of fresh fruit and vegetables.   
    Farm-to-School items and programming are improving our students’ connections to fresh food and resources. The menu balances student preferences, commodity foods, and locally sourced foods that are fresh, fun and encourage students to explore new flavors and new preparations.

    Each student has their own meal account with an assigned PIN number. Please be sure to help your children learn their PIN, especially if they are new buyers. You can also use this account to make payments; checks made out to OHM BOCES Food Service, or online prepayments using are preferable, though cash in a labeled envelope is also an option.
