Good nutrition and learning go hand-in-hand! The Student Nutrition Department is made up of a dedicated team of food and nutrition professionals that are focused on our students' health, and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and education.
Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students. Cheerful attitudes are the most important ingredient to our daily success.
Our goal is to help your child have a healthy and successful school year. The Student Nutrition Services Department serves an average of 2500 meals daily. The meals served are prepared by a caring and knowledgeable staff that follows state guidelines to ensure that your child receives a safe and nutritious meal. The Findlay City School District participates in the National School Lunch Program. This program sets guidelines from the USDA for the school lunch and breakfast meal patterns which we follow each day. Our “Offer vs Serve” meals are created from menus based on USDA age-appropriate guidelines to ensure nutritional balance and promote healthy lifestyle choices. To view the guidelines set forth for the district, please contact the Student Nutrition Services Director.
