The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) waivers that allowed Dublin City Schools to offer students free breakfast and lunch during the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years have not been extended for the 2022-2023 school year. Because of this change, the District will be returning to pricing from before the pandemic.
Breakfast and lunch will no longer be available at no cost to our families.
Meal prices for the 2022-2023 school year are as follows:
Elementary Breakfast: $1.50
Elementary Lunch: $2.55
Middle School Breakfast: $1.50
Middle School Lunch: $2.80
High School Breakfast: $1.50
High School Lunch: $2.95
Ohio Budget Authorizes Reduced Price Meal Reimbursement: The signed Ohio budget bill includes a provision for the state to cover the cost of a reduced price breakfast and lunch for K12 students. Dublin City School students who apply and qualify for reduced-price meals, based on family income, will now receive the food at no cost to them. Parents can access applications at Food Services / Apply for Free or Reduced Meals (dublinschools.net) and will have the option to submit an online application through our PaySchools system or fill out a hard copy and submit to their respective school.
Free and Reduced Breakfast: $0.00
Free and Reduced Lunch: $0.00
