welcome Back Letter

Dear Parents,
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! The food service department at Bloom-Carroll Schools is looking forward to working together to ensure our students will get great healthy meals. We are always working to offer our students healthier and tastier choices. All schools in the district serve breakfast. Our breakfast includes choice of entrée, fruit, juice, and milk. Lunch includes choice of hot entrees, salads, fresh fruit and vegetable choices, and milk. Students will have a choice of the Regular Menu Lunch, a Sack Lunch, or their choice of a Chef’s Salad.

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. Students will need money on their account to purchase any extra items. Parents can send money with their child or add money to their account via Extra items cannot be charged.
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.  The Ohio Department of Education cannot extend the permissions for no-cost meals for all students. 
  For the 2022-23 school year, the price of reduced and paid lunches will be as follows: 
Reduced Price Students, All Grades
*Free and reduced meal applicationsHouseholds may apply for free or reduced-price meal benefits online. Applications are available at or call your school’s office to get one sent home with your child. If your child(ren) were eligible for free/reduced meals last year, please remember to submit a new free/reduced form. Last year’s eligibility will expire on September 24, 2022. If you would like to see if your family qualifies, please fill out a form.  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. 
Children need healthy meals to learn. We offer healthy meals every day at our schools. We are looking forward to a great year. Please contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for your support and cooperation.

Guidlelines for Meal Charging

Families are expected to provide money for each student’s meal account on a regular and consistent basis. Our food service department understands that sometimes a student will forget or lose their money, so we do allow charges to a limit. Unpaid charges place a financial strain on the Food Service Department, so please understand that this is to be paid back right away. We will let your child know if they are running low on money in their account and remind them if they are out of money. Parents can also designate that their child may never charge or make certain purchases. To put any purchasing restrictions on a student’s account or if you are unsure of a charge, please contact us.

Lunch Charge Policy:

Grades K-12 will be permitted to charge a limit of three regular meals.

When a student has reached the charge limit, an alternate meal will be provided. An alternate meal will include a sandwich, fruit, and milk.

Students that have charged the limit will not be permitted to purchase a breakfast unless they have cash.

Students are not permitted to charge extras or a  la cart items at any time.

Students with charges will not be permitted to purchase extras until the charges have been paid. Any extra money given to the cashier will be used to pay outstanding charges.

Students should make every attempt to avoid charging by call a parent for lunch money. Any charges will be carried over to school fees. Failure to pay charges/fees may result in the withholding of diploma/transcript.

Lunch Charge Notification Procedures:

Students will be alerted about low balances daily by the cashier.

Charge notices will be emailed to the parent upon reaching a negative account balance. 

Parents will receive a mailed letter after the three-charge limit is reached.

Parents will receive a phone call from the Food Service Supervisor for collection after five charges (three regular and 2 alternative).

Any unpaid meal charges will be turned over to the Treasurer’s Department for collection. Unresolved lunch charges will remain on student’s fees and must be paid prior to participating in graduation ceremonies.

*Parents can add money to student accounts by cash or check in the school cafeteria or online by using the link to EZPAY from the school’s website. There is no charge to use this service. Parents can also set it up to receive low balance alerts even if they do not use it to add money to their child’s account. Go to the school’s website, and select the EZPAY link. 

With this service, parents can:
  • Check account balance
  • Set reminders to notify parents when the account is low
  • Track spending by viewing student’s cafeteria purchases

  • The service is free to use
  • Any remaining balance will transfer to the next school year
