During the last school year, children and families benefited 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. Southington Local Schools and the Ohio Department of Education cannot extend the permission 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. Applications must be filled out and returned as soon as possible as was done before the pandemic. 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.
For the 2022-2023 school year, the price of reduced and paid lunches will be as follows:
Grades Breakfast Lunch
PK-5(Paid) $1.15 $2.25
6-12 (Paid) $1.15 $2.65
Reduced Price- $.30 $.40
