What's for Lunch?

  • Fruits and vegetables on forks


    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! 

    Children need healthy meals to learn. The Solon Schools offer healthy meals every school day…building Strong Bodies and Bright Minds one meal at a time.

    **NEW** EZPay is Transitioning to PaySchools Central

    PaySchools is excited to announce that your district will be upgraded to our latest and greatest online payment product, PaySchools Central! While the upgrade is intended to be seamless, we want to make you aware of the specifics of the transition.  Please click on the PaySchools tab on the left or visit https://www.solonschools.org/payschools for more information on how to setup and manage your account.

    Free & Reduced-Price Lunch Information

    We have enjoyed serving meals at no cost to all students.  Current guidance from USDA does not allow us to serve free meals to students in the 2022-2023 school year without an approved 2022-2023 Free & Reduced Lunch Application on file.

    You are encouraged to fill out an online Free & Reduced Lunch Application for your family.  To determine eligibility for free or reduced-price meals, please submit an online application found at the “Free & Reduced Lunch Application” tab on the left.

    Food & Nutrition Services are a solely funded entity that only receives revenue from meals served.  When students and parents choose to purchase meals from school, it is the equivalent to supporting a local business.  We greatly appreciate your support and thank you for purchasing your child's meal through the Solon City Schools' Food & Nutrition Services Department!
