This year Food Services is very excited to continue to provide new and healthy selections on our menu. We will be trying to go back into our 'normal' style of service. The meals will be going back in the paid status, and service lines will once again open. Please help your students learn their lunch codes for the cafeteria lines.  


A few pointers to help you navigate the menu:

  • To better promote healthy habits, a student must take a fruit or vegetable in order to be a lunch. Please help encourage your student to choose both fruits and vegetables daily.
  • Additionally, all of our grain selections are now whole grains to help your child grow
  • For your convenience, the back of the menu includes all payment and contact information

All menus are posted online (see Quick Links on this page or any building page) and are also printed in the Trading Post newspaper. Additionally, the monthly menu will be posted in your child's classroom and cafeteria. Students submit their choice of entree during the morning in the classroom at the elementary level.


Healthy Hunger-Free Kids 

Look for more healthy and nutritious selections to be offered this year at all buildings.  Please view the summary provided under Nutrition for more information. 

Highlights of Healthy Hunger-Free Kids are:

  • 1/2 or more of all grains served will be whole grains
  • Every meal must have a fruit or vegetable on the student tray
  • Students will see a rainbow of color on their tray from the variety of fruits and vegetables that are offered 

Ala Carte Offerings

The ala carte lunch option allows for students to purchase their ala carte selections they like, but bundles it with one or more other healthy components, such as milk, fruit or vegetable, all for the lunch price.  All ala carte items must meet Smart Snack guidelines.  Each school offers various ala carte items at various prices.  Please see each individual building for more information.

National School Lunch Program
(Additional information/applications available under Links/Resources)

Wadsworth City Schools participates in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program.  Some students may qualify for free or reduced-priced meals.  Applications are available from this web page (see Links/Resources to the right) or from any school building office.  PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST USE THE 2022-2023 APPLICATION; FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN THE RETURN OF THE FORM TO YOU AND A DELAY IN YOUR CHILD(REN) RECEIVING THE FREE/REDUCED BENEFIT.

Wadsworth City Schools follows the Offer versus Serve policy sponsored by the USDA.  Offer vs. Serve is intended to decrease waste and costs by allowing students to refuse up to two components in a lunch and one component in a breakfast.  The lunch components consist of an entrée, vegetable, fruit, and milk.  The breakfast components consist of an entrée, fruit/juice and milk.
