The Nutrition Services Department is made up of a team of 16 food service professionals in four kitchens who are committed to providing high quality meals to students at an affordable price to families.
The Department of Nutrition Services strictly adheres to the USDA regulations regarding the sale of food items to children in schools. Breakfast meals, lunch meals and a la carte items are sold in all cafeterias daily.
Menus and Meal Prices
"Favorite" your school for easier access in the future. Download the Nutrislice app and choose SchoolMeals-OH as the district name. We share this site with other districts which is why you see other schools listed.
Menus are planned to ensure that the USDA requirements are met or exceeded. A lunch meal consists of five components: protein, fruit, vegetable, grain, and milk. A breakfast meal consists of a protein or grain, fruit, and milk. A student may refuse certain items, but must take a fruit or vegetable. If the minimum components are not chosen by the student, then a la carte pricing applies.
Meals are at no cost to students through the 2021-22 school year.

Free & Reduced Price
Apply online for free or reduced price meals by logging into your parent portal on Infinite Campus. Although meals are at no cost, you may be eligible for other benefits by qualifying for free or reduced price meals. These other benefits include waiver of school fees, potential P-EBT funds and so there is no interruption of meal benefits after the current free meals for all program ends. We encourage you to submit an application if you feel your family qualifies for these benefits.
After logging in to your Infinite Campus parent portal, click on the "More" link then "Meal Benefits" link on the left side of the screen. You will be asked to create a 5 character PIN. This PIN must be no more than 5 characters and must contain at least two of the following: number, letter, special character.
A new application must be submitted yearly and you must provide meals for your child until your application has been approved.
If you received a letter from our office stating you have pre-qualified for free meals, you do NOT need to submit an online free or reduced price meal application.
Payment Methods for A La Carte
Online Pre-Payments: To pay online with a credit or debit card, log into your Parent Portal account in Infinite Campus. Allow 24 hours for payments to be received and applied to the account. Student transactions may also be viewed through this service. No fee applies to use this service.
Check: Please make checks payable to your school cafeteria and include your child's name and ID number on the check. If splitting among multiple children in the same building, please indicate the amount to post to each check.
Cash: Cash is accepted, but change will not be given. Any change will be applied to your child's meal account automatically.
