During the last school year, children and families benefitted from no-cost school meals for all students, made possible by special permission from the United States Department of Agriculture. Unfortunately, these permissions have expired. Rossford Exempted Village Schools and the Ohio Department of Education cannot extend the permissions for no-cost meals for all students.
School meals will still be available to all students; however, they will not be free to all students. Households may apply for free or reduced-price meal benefits at lunchapplication.com or at rossfordschools.org under Forms in the Food Service Department link as was done prior to the pandemic. There will also be physical copies of the Free and Reduced Applications located in the office of each building. Eligibility for free and reduced-price lunch is based on federal income guidelines or participation in other programs such as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and Ohio Works First. For additional information concerning the National School Lunch Program, please see the U.S. Department of Agriculture school lunch question and answer webpage.
If you qualify for free or reduced meals you are eligible to have your school fees waived. A fee waiver form must be turned in to waive school fees.
We abide by the USDA National School Lunch Program rules and regulations. We provide free and reduced lunches to qualifying families.
