It is the mission of Nutrition Services to make a significant contribution to the overall physical and mental well-being of each student to enhance their ability to participate fully in the education process. This will be achieved by providing wholesome, high quality, nutritious and appetizing school lunches served in a courteous manner, in a sanitary and pleasant cafeteria environment. This mission will be pursued in the most efficient and cost effective means possible, in compliance with the guidelines of the Ohio Department of Education National School Lunch Program.
To increase the acceptance and consumption of school lunch, we utilize a provision known as “Offer versus Serve” in all of our lunch-rooms. This option is intended to reduce food waste by allowing children to choose three of the five meal components offered at each lunch; although we recommend all five components as the better value.
The five components are:
*Meat /Meat Alternative: 2 oz. lean meat, 2 oz. cheese, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup beans, 8 oz. yogurt, or 4 Tbsp. peanut butter or seeds.
*Grains/Breads: 8 servings per week.
*Fruits and /or Vegetables: 3/4 cup of 2 different selections.
*Fluid Milk: 8 oz.
*Serving sizes listed are for Elementary and Middle school students.
Several different choices of entrées are offered each day in all of our cafeterias. These include the published "menu" entrée, a variety of hot and cold sandwiches, chef salads, fruit yogurt and sunflower seed combos, and a variety of prepacked, grab and go “lunchable” meals. The entrée combines meat and the grain product. Several choices of fruit and vegetables are offered daily. Milk is offered in chocolate and white flavors including fat free and 1% fat content. Snacks, bottled water, and juices, approved by the Director of Nutrition Services, are available for sale a la carte.
