Food Services

The Carlstadt-East Rutherford Regional High School District contracted with the Pomptonian Food Service company to provide nutritious food to students and staff. Pomptonian is focused on offering a high quality and nutritious lunch service to the communities they serve.  They continuously seek new services and menu items to keep the program fresh and innovative. Pomptonian’s trained staff freshly prepares the day’s meals each morning on premise in the school cafeteria. The production of the meals and service is overseen by ServSafe certified management to ensure that foods are prepared and served at the optimum serving temperatures to produce a fresh, hot, and delicious meal.


For the 2023-2024 school year, free school meals are only offered to eligible students.

It is essential that you complete the Free and Reduced Meals Application on the Genesis Parent Portal in order to receive the benefits of Free School Meals status. Eligible families may also benefit from other federal and local government programs, such as the SAT Fee Waiver Service. The application takes only a few minutes and must be completed each school year.

Please note that you can also view and print paper applications for Free and Reduced School Meals below. Be sure to carefully fill out the form (only one per household) following the instructions provided, then ask your child to bring it to school once completed.

Asegúrese de completar cuidadosamente el formulario (solo uno por hogar) siguiendo las instrucciones proporcionadas, luego pídale a su hijo que lo traiga a la escuela una vez completado.
