Vestal Food Service finding work-around to Milk Carton shortage
Vestal Due to a fire at a major packaging plant, Vestal Food Service is preparing for an anticipated shortage in milk cartons that will be impacting not only schools in our area, but across the U.S. The shortage is expected to persist into early 2024.
In order to accommodate breakfast and lunch service, insulated beverage dispensers and extra cups have been purchased and will be available in our cafeterias. Students will be able to obtain white milk from these containers; staff will be available to offer assistance to students as needed. At this time, chocolate milk will not be available.
We want to thank the Vestal Food Service staff and BOCES food service program for assisting us as we work through this temporary situation.

Free School Meals in Vestal beginning November 1
Due to the USDA (US Department of Agriculture) expanding access to the federal Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), all students enrolled in any Vestal CSD school will be able to receive free breakfast and lunch. This expansion goes into effect beginning November 1, 2023.
Students will need to enter their PIN number when going through the Food Service line. Any additional items, such as ice cream or snacks, would need to be purchased.

If you have any questions, please contact Vestal CSD's Food Service Supervisor at [email protected]
