National Meal Programs; Free and Reduced Meal Application

National School Lunch Program and National School Breakfast Program
North Canton City Schools participates in the National School Lunch and Breakfast program at all of the schools in our district. Some students may qualify for free or reduced-priced meals. Click on the link on the right to access our Online Meals Applications. Paper applications are available in each office or you can download the Free and Reduced Meal Application. Free and Reduced meal applications can be filled out at any time of the year, but we must receive a new meal application each school year.  There is a 30 day carryover period at the beginning of each school year in order to have enough time to process new applications.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider. 

Special Dietary Needs and Food Allergies

Food Service 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.
