For the past two years, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has offered waivers to Nutrition Services Programs across the United States, allowing these programs to offer all students breakfast and lunch, at no charge. These waivers expired on June 30, 2022. This means that starting this school year, 2022-23, the Nutrition Services programs across the nation will return to normal, pre-pandemic operations. Families will once again be asked to complete and submit a current school year Free/Reduced Meal Application if they would like to see if their students qualify based on the income of all family members. If you completed a 2021-22 meal application and were approved for free or reduced meals, your status will carryover for the first 30 days of this school year. Please be aware that reduced meals now have a cost. Breakfast is $.30 and lunch is $.40.
The Nutrition Services Department is committed to assisting families and making this transition back to normal operations as easy as possible. Please feel free to contact the department at 216-267-2142 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Nutrition Services is revising the current district charging policy. The current policy states that elementary students are able to charge 2 lunches, while middle and high school students are able to charge 1 lunch before receiving a gratis lunch. Currently, charges for breakfast are not allowed, but will be allowed moving forward.
Students will now be allowed to charge 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches before receiving a gratis meal. This equates to the elementary students (K-4) being able to have a negative balance of $17.25 and the middle and high school students (5-12) being able to have a negative balance of $21.25. The intent is to decrease the amount of gratis meals district wide and also give those parents/guardians who are having financial difficulties some lenience. The goal is to ensure students are receiving a healthy, sustainable breakfast and lunch every day. This is not meant to increase the negative balance at the end of the school year. Parents are encouraged to use MealTime to pay for meals and/or to track purchases made by their student(s).
Special diet requests should be directed to the Nutrition Services office at 216-267-2142.
