National School Lunch Program

Trinity High School
Free and Reduced Lunch Program

July, 2023

Dear Trinity Families:

Trinity High School participates in the National School Lunch Program, offering Free and Reduced lunches to our families who qualify based on their family income. Regardless of your status in the prior school year, households will need to apply for free or reduced-price meal benefits each new school year.

An online application is available through our continued partnership with Harris School Solutions at Eligibility for free and reduced-price lunch is based on federal income guidelines or participation in other programs such as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Ohio Works First (OWF), and Medicaid.

Children need healthy meals to learn.  Trinity High School offers healthy meals every school day.  Breakfasts will cost $2.00 and lunch $4.00.  If your child qualifies for free or reduced-price meals, the Reduced price is $.30 for breakfast; $.40 for lunch.

Please download and read the document below for some frequently asked questions about Free and Reduced-price meals.  The document also contains the Federal Eligibility Income Chart for the upcoming school year, so you may see if you might qualify based on your household size and income.

Free/Reduced Lunch Information with Income Eligibility Chart 

With school lunches beginning on Friday, August 18, it is imperative you begin your application TODAY so your child’s lunch status is recorded in our cafeteria system.  It could take up to 10 days for our cafeteria staff to process your application and send you notification if you have qualified for Free or Reduced lunch.

If you do not apply, your child will not receive the benefit of free or reduced meals.  In this instance, your child would be designated as a full-pay student for both breakfast and lunch until your application has been reviewed and approved.

Students with Free/Reduced status will not be identified in the cafeteria line.  Trinity uses a cashless cafeteria line.  Parents will load money on to a cafeteria account for their child and the student will scan their school ID or key in their 8-digit Student ID# in the cafeteria line to pay for their breakfast, lunch, or a la carte food items.  Students will be given a temporary Cafeteria ID with barcode on the first day of school to use until their school IDs are distributed.

Please visit EZSchoolPay here to create your cafeteria account and add money so your child may pay for their breakfast or lunch using our cashless system. If you prefer, you may submit a cash or check payment to the school business office and those funds will be loaded to your child’s lunch account.

If you have any questions, please reach out to our Director of Food Service, Mr. Howie Spies, using the information below.

Have a great day!
