MEALS ~ PRICES AND APPLICATIONS
2022-2023 Meal Prices

Application for Free and Reduced Meals:
We encourage you to complete the Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application form. The United States Department of Agriculture has not extended the meal waivers that were enacted to allow schools to provide delicious, nutritious meals for our students at no charge to families during the pandemic.  As we transition back to full-pay school meals for the 2022-2023 school year, it’s vitally important to us that all eligible students receive the help they need to continue to be well nourished and ready for learning every day. To determine if your students are eligible for free or reduced-price meals, you are required to fill out the application. We encourage you to fill out the online Free and Reduced Priced Meal Application at PaySchools Central which is available at this link: PaySchools or you can click on the links on the right to access our Online Free & Reduced Price Meals Application and more information. 

Paper applications can be picked up at the district office entrance hall or you can email Jill Lauter at [email protected] to request a paper or e-file application.
 
*Please note that the Free and Reduced-Price Meal application must be completed every school year and you can reapply as often as needed throughout the year if your household income amounts change.

Meal Account Payments


PaySchools Central Online Payment
Our Point of Sale system is set-up to take credit/debit cards and electronic checks via PaySchools Central found at https://payschoolscentral.com and can be quickly accessed by clicking on the PaySchools Central button on the right. Simply set up an account for your child(ren) using their PIN (student ID) number. This system will allow you to view purchases, add money to their account, schedule automatic payments and send you email reminders of your child’s account balance if you wish. This is the same system you would use to make School Fee Payments as well. You do not have to pay online to view your child’s account.  Click on the "PaySchools User Tutorial Video" link on the right for more information or you can call PaySchools Parent Hot Line at 1-877-393-6628.  

Payments can be made at school
Your student can bring a check or cash to school to add to their meal account.  Have checks made payable to NCCS Food and Nutrition Services.  When sending cash or check with a students in kindergarten through 5th grade, please place it in an envelope marked with the student's name and "meal account" or "lunch money".  Older students can hand a check or cash directly to the cashier when they're getting their meal. 

Please Note

All meal account balances from the end of the 2021-2022 school year have been carried over to the new school year. You can check your students accounts and add funds at PaySchoolsCentral.com.


SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS AND FOOD ALLERGIES
Our Food Service Team is happy to accommodate students with special dietary needs and food allergies within our abilities. Students must provide written medical documentation from the treating physician in order to provide for this accommodation. This documentation must include, but is not limited to, a statement of the allergy, what dietary changes from the traditional school meal are necessary, what specific foods must be omitted or substituted and what dietary items can be used to replace the items. This documentation should be given to the school nurse.

We are unable to substitute any item for milk according to the USDA and the Ohio Department of Education [USDA Final Rule Fluid Milk Substitutions in the School Nutrition Program (73 FR 52903)]. We will provide a cup and water to any student that asks, or students can choose a 4 oz juice cup as part of the fruit offering on their tray, as well as purchasing bottled water and juice cups a la carte.

Feel free to Email the Food Service Team with any questions.
WELLNESS POLICY AND MEAL CHARGE POLICY

  • To be respectful and always provide equal opportunity for all students
  • To maintain the financial integrity and monetary responsibility of school nutrition programs
