Food Service & Wellness Program

School Meals Update- During the last school year, children and families benefited from no-cost school meals for all students, made possible by special permission from the United States Department of Agriculture. Unfortunately, these permissions have expired.  Crestview Schools and the Ohio Department of Education cannot extend the permissions for no-cost meals for all students.  

School meals will still be available to all students; however, they will not be free to all students. Households may apply for free or reduced-price meal benefits starting 07/01/22, applications are available online at or paper applications are available in each school office as was done before the pandemic. Eligibility for free and reduced-price lunch is based on federal income guidelines or participation in other programs such as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and Ohio Works First. For additional information concerning the National School Lunch Program, please see the U.S. Department of Agriculture school lunch question and answer webpage.
