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.

Updates for the 2022-23 school year

Due to the pandemic, the federal government has been providing universal free school meals for students.  This program has allowed Upper Arlington Schools and other school districts to provide free lunches to all students since the spring of 2020.

This federal waiver program expired this summer.  This means that beginning with the 2022-2023 school year, free or reduced-price meals will be available only to the families that qualify based upon financial need. The free or reduced-price meal benefit application is available in the Titan Family Portal.

All other students will be charged for meals and a la carte items / snacks purchased through the school cafeteria.

The meal costs for the start of the 2022-2023 school year will be:

  • Elementary lunch: $3.00

  • Middle school breakfast: $1.75; middle school lunch: $3.25 and $3.75

  • High school breakfast: $2.00; high school lunch: $4.25 and $4.75

A la carte items will be available for an additional cost at each building level. For more details on our school meal program, including how to add money to your student’s meal account through SPS EZpay, please see this flier.

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.

Titan Family Portal

Families can access the Titan Family Portal to view and monitor their student's meal usage in more detail. On Titan, families can see their student's current meal balance and purchase history, set spending limits and transfer money between student accounts. Families can also access elementary and middle school lunch menus and complete a meal benefit application on Titan.
