Springfield's Food Service Department

Welcome to Springfield Local Schools Food Service Department

Springfield Local Schools' food service professionals pride themselves on preparing and offering students nutritional, delicious meal choices each school day!

Annually, the Department undergoes an Administrative/Compliance Audit conducted by the Ohio Department of Education's Office of Child and Nutrition. We are pleased to share that the department met all of the rigorous performance standards. The kitchens at each school also underwent on-site inspections and received high marks from the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department!

The District offers both students and parents the convenience of an online management of student accounts. Funds (American currency only) can be deposited into student accounts using envelopes provided at the school or via credit/debit cards. For those choosing cash options, deposit drop boxes are located in each school's main office.

The COVID-19 public health and economic crisis continues to be bigger than any other we’ve seen in our lifetimes. It has disrupted our daily lives as well as supply chains and operations across the economy and across the world. USDA is aware that some schools are experiencing

challenges purchasing and obtaining food for their meal programs due to supply chain challenges. Some have received little notice that ordered food products will not be provided as planned. As a result, these schools have had to find other products to serve on the school meal

menu.

From the USDA:
Since the start of the public health crisis, school nutrition professionals have worked tirelessly to continue to serve nutritious meals and they continue to do so now despite supply chain challenges they may be experiencing.

Why are supply chain challenges occurring? The COVID-19 pandemic exposed a food system that was rigid, consolidated, and fragile. Major disruptions in supply chains have arisen from our ports to school lunchrooms. Staffing

shortages at commercial truckers, farms, food distributors and manufacturers, processing facilities, warehouses, and schools contribute to these supply chain challenges. In addition, a shortage of adequate childcare and eldercare prevents some people, especially women, from returning to the workplace.

USDA is committed to doing everything in its power, including working across the federal government, to help ease the pressures on our food supply chain and overcome challenges in the food and agriculture sector. Through a wide spectrum of new flexibilities, resources, and hands-on support, USDA is being responsive to any obstacles schools are facing and is taking steps to set school nutrition professionals up for success.

As supply chain challenges ease in the future, school meal programs will return to their pre- pandemic operations. In the meantime, USDA supports its school meal professionals as they continue to operate these critical school meal programs.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended its program for all school districts to offer FREE breakfast and lunch meals to ALL students each school day, a program that began last school year. This meal program will last until May 26, 2022, or while the USDA funds are available. Please note that a la carte milk and snacks are not part of this free meal plan.

Please note that our “Fee Waiver Application & Free or Reduced-Price School Meal Application” is still used for the consideration of the waiving of fees/assessments for Springfield Local Schools, so those who may qualify should submit this application for the purpose of the waiver of fees for the 2021-2022 school year. Also, if the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program were to be extended, families may receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits if this application has been completed.
