LUNCH/BREAKFAST PROGRAMS AND PROCEDURES: Student breakfast and lunch programs are designed to provide every student with balanced meals that are both nutritious and tasty.  So that no student is neglected, a government-subsidized, free and reduced breakfast and lunch program is available for families who qualify. As the Summer Seamless Program is no longer offered through the USDA, it is important for parents to apply for the Federal Meal Program.  Applications are required by August 15th.  Any family who may now qualify for the Federal Meal Program, may request a temporary application by calling the school. All applications must be re-submitted annually, as required by the state of Ohio.  Applications can be filled out on line by using MySchoolApps.


Twinsburg City Schools allows students (from grades K-8) to charge a maximum of two lunches.  Students who have outstanding charges and come to school without lunch money will receive our standard elementary “Field Trip” brown bag lunch, which will provide all required protein, grains, vegetable, fruit and milk (barring a dairy allergy). If a student comes to school with no money on more than two consecutive days, cafeteria managers are required to contact the child’s parent/guardian to investigate and determine the cause of the situation.  High School students will be allowed to charge a maximum of two lunches (no "Field Trip" brown bag lunch offered).  Students at all schools will not be able to charge breakfasts, but a complimentary fruit and milk will be offered. 


For the 2022/2023 school year, school lunches will cost  $3.25 at Wilcox and Bissell and $3.50 (Dodge, RBC and THS). For students who want to purchase milk only for packed lunches, the cost is 50¢. Breakfast is $2.00 (All Schools). Meals may be paid for in advance. Payments by check or cash must be done on Mondays only.   If parents would like to have the option to have to prepay for milk for their child at Wilcox or Bissell, please contact Mark Bindus at [email protected] so that this a la carte option can be enabled for your child in our Point of Sale computer system. Each students’ account must be enabled to allow for such purchases. Forms and information regarding the School Lunch Program can be obtained through your child’s school. There is also an option to pay for school lunches online.


Students who choose not to buy lunch may pack a lunch from home.

Food Safety will remain our number one concern when we prepare meals for the students of Twinsburg City Schools.  All of our staff is trained annually on food safety.  Additionally, each one of our Managers in each one of our buildings is ServSafe Certified.  Our goal is always to serve your student the most nutritious and safest breakfasts and lunches possible.

Food Quality has been and always will be important.  Our Registered Dietitian, Mark Bindus, plans our menus to ensure that not only are the foods we serve safe, but nutritious and tasty.  Our menus are planned to exceed current Federal Standards and be appealing and tasty for your students.  Each day we will offer fresh fruits and vegetables as well as our homemade pizza and Cheesy Bread with dipping sauce as a meatless options.
