Food Services


Welcome to the Maple Heights City School District’s Food Services Department.  The Goals of the Food Service Department are:

  • To provide students and staff with nutritious meals which have been prepared in a safe, sanitary manner.
  • To promote a school-based nutrition program that will link students, school food service personnel, administrators, and parents.
  • To promote a positive work environment for employees who are happy and are positive role models for our students.

Our schools are again eligible for the new option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) non-pricing meal service option for this school year.  This means that all students enrolled in the Maple Heights City Schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household during each day of the school year.  No further action is required to receive free meals.  Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit an application.  There will be no a la carte items sold in the cafeterias in conjunction with this program, so there will be no need for money to be deposited on account for students. However, approved beverage vending machines are available in the cafeteria at Maple Heights High School.  Vending machine purchases are optional and require payment.

In the past, if a student received free means, they were automatically approved for a fee waiver.  With every student now receiving free meals, you must submit a form to be approved to waiver student instructional fees.  This form must be filled out, signed, and returned to your child’s school.  Families should submit one form with all family members’ names. This waiver form must be completed annually for each family.

If you need assistance, please contact 216.587.6100, extension 3301.
