Nutritional Services

The Upper Arlington Schools Nutritional Services staff takes great pride in providing our students with nutritious, tasty, and visually appealing lunches and snacks. Items sold or served at our schools meet very strict state and federal requirements, which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines.

Thanks to a USDA waiver, all students enrolled in Upper Arlington Schools (preK-12) will be able to receive free lunch this school year, or until federal funding is no longer available. At the high school and middle schools, grab-and-go breakfast will also be available for no charge, and a la carte options will still be charged to students’ EZPay accounts. We will communicate with families in advance of any changes to this temporary federal program.

Hybrid Learning Meals

In-school meals during hybrid learning

Nutritional Services offers pre-ordered meals for students on their in-person learning days. Meals can be pre-ordered by visiting the UA preorder link or scan the QR code for online ordering on the UA Nutritional Services webpage. Each meal includes a choice of entree, fruit and/or vegetables and milk. 


When pre-ordering your meal, elementary families will select their students' home classroom for delivery, and middle and high school families will select their students' room for either 2nd or 6th period.

Lunch Menus

All Upper Arlington schools use a digital menu system that offers families more information about the meals we're serving students.

You can access nutritional and allergy information and digitally create meals with your student to help them make healthy choices in the cafeteria. And all of this is accessible by visiting our Menus webpage or through the "Web Menus by Isite" app that you can download to your phone or tablet! 
 
To download the app, search the App Store or Google Play for “Web Menus by Isite Software.” On welcome screen, select the name of the school building.  Once you access each school, they will automatically show under "Schools" on your app. 
 
To learn more about Upper Arlington Menus and Menus by Isite, you can view this user guide that shows how to use the menus website.
 

Prepaying for Your Child's Meals

Families have two options for prepayment for student meals. You may add money to your student's lunch account online through SPS EZPay.  You may also deliver a check made payable to Upper Arlington Schools to the cook at your child's school.
