Welcome to the Food Service & Child Nutrition Program
For the past two years, we have been able to offer all Medina City Schools students free meals due to federal programs related to the pandemic. Earlier this year, the Federal Government announced that they will no longer provide funding to school districts to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students beginning with the 2022-23 school year. We recognize this change will impact some of our families. Medina City Schools will continue to offer free and reduced meals to students in need as we did prior to the pandemic. Eligible families must complete this form to enroll. The enrollment form will also be available at all school buildings.
Payment for meals can be made by cash or check at each individual school. For your convenience, you may also pay online by ACH Check or Credit Card through the PayForIt system.

The Food Service & Child Nutrition Program is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to student’s health, well-being, and ability to learn. Meals, foods, and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements, which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We are committed to providing meals that are nutritious, tasty, and appealing to students in a safe, sanitary, and cost-effective manner.
A breakfast meal consists of 4 items: grain(s), protein, fruit/vegetable, and milk. Students must select at least 3 of the 4 items, one of which must be either a fruit or a vegetable.
Lunch consists of 5 components: an entree, which is 2 components (protein and grain), a fruit, a vegetable, and milk. Students must select at least 3 of the 5 components one of which must be either a fruit or vegetable. At the elementary and middle school levels students can select up to 2 servings of vegetables and 1 serving of fruit and at the high school level students can select up to 2 servings of vegetables and 2 servings of fruit.
