Message from Food Services

The goal of Galion City School District’s breakfast and lunch program is to provide healthy meals to children during the school day. In order to serve healthy, high-quality meals to all children, we must make sure we are fiscally responsible.

Families play a key role in this effort, and are responsible for purchases made by their children in our school cafeteria. 

If you have any questions, please call the Lorrie Pennington, Director of Food Service at 419-468-6500 Ext 11016.

 

The Facts About School Meals


School meals today offer kids healthy, tasty and appealing choices;

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Whole grains
  • Reduced TransFats
  • More salads with choices
  • Pizza with whole wheat crust, low-fat cheese
  • Baked fries rather than fried
  • Healthful cooking/preparation techniques

School meals are balanced and healthy
Lunches that are part of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) must meet nutrition guidelines including:

  • limiting fat and saturated fat in meals
  • providing one-third of the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of protein, calcium, iron, and vitamins A and C
  • NSLP lunches meet the dietary guidelines
  • NSLP lunches are served in age appropriate portion sizes and provide the right balance of protein, dairy, whole grains, fruits and vegetables

School Meals help kids maintain a healthy weight

  • Students who eat school meals provided through the NSLP and the SBP are more likely to be at a healthy weight.***
  • NSLP participants are more likely than non-participants to consume vegetables, milk and milk products, and meat and other protein-rich foods, both at lunch and over 24 hours. They also consume less soda and/or fruit drinks.*
  • This benefit is especially relevant for kids and their parents in today's climate of heightened awareness of obesity issue.
  • Students are less likely to gain weight during the school year when in school then during the summer when school is out.
