The Mansfield City Schools Food Service Department is committed to providing healthy meals that adhere to the guidelines of the National School Lunch and National School Breakfast programs to all Mansfield City Schools students. Meals are planned based on the federal nutrition requirements of the 2010 Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act and provide a variety of fluid milk, meat or meat alternates, vegetables, fruits, and grains. The monthly breakfast and lunch menus can be accessed by clicking the "Breakfast Menu" or "Lunch Menu" links in the sidebar on the right.
Nationally, over 25 million students in over 90 thousand schools and agencies participate in Child Nutrition Programs, making them one of the country’s largest food service operations. Ohio’s food service programs serve over 1 million meals daily at over 4000 sites. Mansfield City Schools serves approximately 1600 breakfasts and 2500 lunches each day.
Continuing in the 2019-20 school year, Breakfast and Lunch will be provided to all Mansfield City Schools students at no cost, regardless of household income. Families do not need to complete a household income application or any other paperwork for students to participate.
No cost meals in the school district are provided through an element of the USDA Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 called the Community Eligibility Provision. This provision provides eligibile school districts an alternative approach to operating school meal programs. Instead of collecting individual applications, the CEP allows approved districts to use information from other means-tested programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Programs and Ohio Works First (OWF), in addition to other verifiable programs, to determine the level of Federal funding allocated to a participating district's school meal programs.
Breakfast and lunch are provided each day in all school buildings. To maintain optimal health and stay focused on school work, all students are encouraged to eat both breakfast and lunch daily.
If you have any questions regarding meals or the school meal policy, please see the contact information below.
