Breakfast
Breakfast is served daily in all buildings (except when school is delayed for weather)
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 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. Please complete one application per family and return with your child to school or you may mail it to the Board of Education Office, 1001 Park Avenue, Fostoria, Ohio 44830; attention Holly Reinbolt, Food Service Supervisor. If the application is approved, your child(ren) will begin to receive or continue to receive free or reduced price meals from the date of approval. A letter will be sent home notifying you of your child's meal status. Applications can be submitted at any time during the school year if your family financial circumstances change. All information submitted to the school is kept confidential. There is no discrimination or identification of free or reduced price paying students. We urge all families to consider filling out an application.


Children with Special Dietary Needs
Students with food allergies that require special dietary needs - substitutions or modifications in school meals will be made for students whose disability restricts their diet in accordance with USDA regulation 7 CFR Part 15b. Please have the evaluation form completed and signed by Physician and Parent. Click here for the required Evaluation Form. No substitutions or modifications will be made until a completed evaluation form is received. This form must be updated each school year.


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.

In order to accommodate student accounts there is an online system for payment on our FCS district website. Click on the Parents/Students tab, and a drop down will show Total Access (School Dining).  Please click on this and follow the directions listed on the page.  If you do not have a username and password please contact Holly Reinbolt, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or Donna Elchert, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., for assistance.  During the sign up process, you will be asked if you would like to receive an email notification when the account balance drops below the district-determined amount of $12.50.  This should eliminate the student running out of funds.  However, glitches in the system do occur and this is not a program that is managed by our food service or technology departments.  Please notify us if there is an issue and we will work to provide as much assistance as possible.
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.
