Welcome to the Food Service & Child Nutrition Program
Welcome to Food Service and Child Nutrition Program
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 their 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.
We are excited to now offer online free and reduced-price meal applications through PaySchools Central for families that believe they may qualify. If you do not want to fill out the application online, you can fill out the paper free and reduced-price meal application and return to the Food Service & Child Nutrition Department. The forms can also be obtained and returned (completed) to any school office. You will be notified by email of your child's status. Until notification you must provide your child with breakfast/lunch or money.
Also new this year, the signed Ohio Budget Bill included the provision for the state to cover the cost for reduced-price breakfasts and lunches. This means if you qualify for reduced-price meals, you do not have to pay the $0.30 for breakfast or the $0.40 for lunch.
Payments 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 PaySchools Central system. They do charge a small fee.
