Studies show that kids who eat breakfast have higher test scores, superior concentration and better muscle coordination, and they're less likely to miss classes or report to school late. Breakfast eaters also tend to exhibit better classroom behavior and perform better in certain subjects like math. As with lunch, our breakfast menu meets state requirements regarding nutrition with a focus on whole grains, plenty of fruit and milk. Breakfast is $1.00 per student and students that qualify can receive breakfast at a reduced cost or free. We encourage you to take advantage of this convenient and healthy program.
FREE & REDUCED PRICE MEALS
Applications for free and reduced-price meals are available at the main office in all buildings and in the Food Service office at FJSHS.

SCHOOL LUNCH CHARGING POLICY
In order to be compliant with federal regulations from the National School Lunch Program, Fostoria City Schools’ charge policy for student accounts will allow students to charge a maximum amount of two lunches ($5.00). No charges are permitted on ala carte items. Repayment for any charged meals is expected the next school day. Students who have reached their charge limit will be offered an alternate meal that consists of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a milk or juice. Students over the charge limit will not be allowed to purchase ala carte items. Students that do not have funds to pay for their meal and are not able to charge should notify the first food service staff member in line and they will then receive the alternate meal. The purpose of this policy is to ensure consistency and fair practices with Food Service student accounts throughout the district and meeting the federal guidelines mentioned above.
We thank you for your support and cooperation in advance. If you have any questions throughout the year please do not hesitate to contact our Food Service Department at 419-436-4114
