The Buckeye Local Schools Food Service Program takes pride in serving nutritious meals daily to our students. We are firm believers that a well fed student learns more effectively. Under no circumstances do we want a child to go without lunch.
We understand that parents are busy and may occasionally forget to pack a lunch or send in money. However, the number of students with a negative balance has grown significantly this school year.
As you know, it is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to provide students with a lunch or means to pay for meals. We do participate in the National School Lunch Program. If you believe your student may be eligible for a reduced or free lunch, please fill out an application, which may be obtained in the school office or on this website.
The school food service program strives to be self funded and operates in a financially responsible manner. Students who have a negative balance may purchase a meal if they have cash in hand to pay for it.
It is the policy of Buckeye Local School District to notify students, parents, and guardians of negative balances several times a year. These letters will be sent to homes, along with notices going home with your student. This is done on a bi-monthly basis.
• Online payment via PayForIt.net or on the Food Services homepage
• Check or cash made payable to Buckeye Local School Cafeteria. Please include the teacher and student’s name.
Thank you for your cooperation regarding this matter.
