Meals at School
Reynoldsburg City School District provides high-quality learning environments to ensure each student reaches their level of success. With that in mind, the mission of the Food Service Department is to provide students and staff with meals that are nutritious, appetizing, and appealing.

Meals served at all levels meet the age-appropriate USDA nutritional requirements for a balanced meal, complying with Congress's Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act that all districts must now follow. These new federal rules are mandated for the 2014-2015 school year. 

RCS Food Services has been proactive by gradually making many of these changes to offer healthier lunches to our students.
 
New Online Payment Options
PayForIt.net 

We are excited to announce that you will be able to put money on your child’s meal account  online over the internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week using PayForIt.net.
By logging onto www.payforit.net, you can easily:

· Set up an account
· Deposit money at your convenience into your child’s Cafeteria account
· Set email reminders to notify you when you child’s account gets low
· Set up recurring payments for your child’s Cafeteria account
· Check your child’s Cafeteria account balance
· View an activity report so you can see what your child has eaten in the previous 30 days

To set up an account, all you will need is:

· A valid email address
· A credit card or ACH Check Information
· Your child’s student identification number

Each child in your family can be set up on the same account. If you decide to put money on your child’s cafeteria account, there is a minimum deposit amount of $20.00. Once the money is put on the account, it typically appears in your child’s lunch account in 2 hours.

Lunch
A lunch consists of a meat or meat alternate, grain, fruit, vegetable, and milk. A student may select all 5 items; however, they may choose a minimum of 3 of the 5 items (one of which must be a vegetable or fruit).
If the Food Service Department receives a note from your child's physician noting an allergy to dairy products, the note must indicate the necessity to substitute a juice for a milk. Otherwise, if not stated in the note, the child may get a drink from the water fountain or may purchase a non-dairy alternative drink through the cafeteria.

Breakfast
Children who eat breakfast at the start of their school day have higher math and reading scores, have broader vocabularies, and perform better on standardized tests. They focus better, behave better, and are more cooperative and get along better with classmates. Children who eat breakfast are less likely to be absent and less likely to see the school nurse and be overweight.
 
Breakfast regulations include:
• All Whole Grain Rich Items
• Calorie Restrictions – Daily Amount Based on Average for 5-Day Week
• Three Food Components – Fruits/Vegetables, Grains, & Milk
• Fruits/Vegetables – 1/2 cup must be offered daily to all age groups
• Grains – 1 oz. equivalent of grains must be offered daily to all age groups
• Milk – 1 cup of fat free (unflavored or flavored) or low fat must be offered daily to all age groups
• Meat/Meat Alternate – currently no requirement to offer meat/meat alternate. Schools may offer a meat/meat alternate in place of part of grains component after the minimum daily grain requirement is offered. A serving of 1 oz. of meat/meat alternate may credit as 1 oz. of grains.
