Food Service

The Food Service Department knows and understands that children who eat well-balanced, nutritious meals do much better in school.  We use the highest quality products to make fresh nutritious meals.  Each school day we provide healthy and affordable breakfast and lunch meals.  Under the guidelines of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) breakfast provides over one-fourth of all of a child's daily nutritional requirements and lunch provides over one-third. 

Students are encouraged to make healthy food choices.  We provide numerous options each day throughout all of the grade levels, from fresh fruits and vegetables to low fat entrees.  To help meet the very important nutritional needs of a growing student, we have planned the elementary, middle and high school menus to accommodate diverse taste buds.

The Oshkosh Area School District strives to provide high-quality, nutritious, and affordable breakfasts and lunches that children will enjoy.

Eligible students receive meals free or at a reduced price.
