Welcome to The Lebanon Food Service Department


Recent legislation by the United States Department of Agriculture(USDA) and under the direction of the Ohio Department of Education, effective Friday September 11, 2020 ALL Lebanon City School students will be provided FREE breakfast and FREE lunch meals. 

During the COVID 19 pandemic, the USDA provided unprecedented flexibility to allow us to feed children through federally supported funds.  The Lebanon City Schools Food Service Department continued to meet the needs of our students during that time. The recent legislation allows us to feed children at no cost to the District and will remain in effect until the end of the 20-21 school year, or until the expiration of the federally declared public health emergency (COVID19) or until federal funding is depleted, whichever is earlier.

We encourage families to continue completing the free and reduced meal applications.  The application will remain on file allowing the family to extend the free or reduced benefit based on their eligibility which may help with school fees, if eligible. All existing funds will remain in the student's lunch account that can be used for ala carte purchases or will be left on the accounts for next school year.

Our District is thankful for the support of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and to the Ohio Department of Education for providing this opportunity for the students.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. All meals, foods and beverages are prepared and served by qualified child nutrition professionals. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
