Offer vs Serve Policy Offer VS. Serve provision of the school lunch program means students are offered  five food components each day from within the federally-required traditional lunch pattern. Elida Local Schools offers this to students in grades 2-12. All students are encouraged to take all items offered on the meal. However under Offer vs Serve, students need only take a minimum of three of the five food components offered one of which must be a fruit or a vegetable component.  Offer Vs. Serve allows students to refuse a food item they do not like, encourages freedom of choice, and helps to eliminate waste.

Breakfast is served daily at the High School & Middle School. On delay days, the Elementary does not serve breakfast. Students are to come directly to the cafeteria from the bus in the morning.

Free & reduced meal applications are accepted the entire school year.

Charging policy:

No charging allowed at Elida High School.
