Benefits of School Lunch

The Food Service Department values the health & well-being of our students and staff.

  • For students the National School Lunch Program provides a nutritious meal containing one-third of the recommended dietary allowance of necessary nutrients.
  • For parents the program offers a convenient method of providing a nutritionally balanced lunch at the lowest possible price.
  • For schools the program enhances children's learning abilities by contributing to their physical and mental well-being.
  • Studies have shown that children whose nutritional needs are met have fewer attendance and discipline problems and are more attentive in class.

Student Meal Accounts

All students have a student meal account which provides information about outstanding balances and meal history. To set-up an account go to You will need your students(s) ID number. You may also contact the Food Service Dept. at 513.861.0600 ext. 147.
