Food During the Pandemic
Meals will still be provided in Hilliard Schools to cover scheduled school days when students are learning from home, during e-learning and hybrid modes, and for Online Academy Students.
As part of the educational mission at Hilliard City Schools, we strive to provide a variety of nutritional options for students at every grade level, for both breakfast and lunch meal periods. Breakfast is an important part of the school day, providing energy to start the day, and preventing the distraction of an empty stomach. All schools in the district serve breakfast. At $1.25, breakfast is a bargain for any budget. In addition, students who are eligible for free or reduced-price lunches can eat breakfast free of charge.
Although we are offering the maximum recommended portion sizes, we realize that older children may want more food than is offered with the lunch. Students may purchase an additional entrée or side item if desired. Snacks are also available for purchase which can also make up for the extra calorie needs of growing children.
Milk is a very important nutritional component of the school lunch. By making flavored milk available we have a greater percentage of children actually drinking the milk that is available with their lunch. If your child has a milk allergy, please send a doctor’s note to your building indicating the allergy and we will provide a milk substitute.
Aramark is currently hiring food service workers for the upcoming school year. Call 614-921-7494 for more information.
The District contracts with ARAMARK to manage the Foodservice Program. Although ARAMARK runs the daily operations of the program, the District sets policies and lunch prices. The District participates in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) in all schools. This program provides state and federal subsidies for the lunches served at the schools. In return for this subsidy, the District must serve meals that meet the NSLP nutrition and portion guidelines.
