Cafeteria Menus

Breakfast is served daily from 7:15-8 a.m. (Monday-Friday). If a student arrives after the instructional day begins, they can grab a “to-go” breakfast when signing in with Attendance. “Breakfast After the Bell” helps ensure all students have an opportunity to eat breakfast in the morning.

Free School Meals

All Hudson students are eligible to receive FREE school meals (breakfast and lunch), regardless of family income, through the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). Click here to learn more.

No application is required, however families should complete this Household Income Eligibility form and return it to the school to help us keep track of the District’s eligibility for this program. This form provides valuable data to the District and it provides a framework for the District to qualify for and take advantage of different programs based on the true demographics of our student population. To return a completed form or request a paper form, please contact:

Chris Diamantatos, School Lunch Director
Hudson City School District, District Office
215 Harry Howard Ave.
Hudson, NY 12534
Phone: 518-828-4360, ext. 2104

Students will continue to have individual school meal accounts and will enter their Personal Identification Number (PIN) in order to receive their FREE meals. If desired, parents/guardians may also prepay for additional entrees including sandwiches, salads, and yogurt parfaits, and/or other items such as ice cream, fruits, and beverages. Prepayments can be sent on a weekly or monthly basis. Checks should be made payable to HCSD Food Service.
