Welcome to Northwestern Local Schools Food Service Department

Our Food Service Department goal at Northwestern is to provide nutritious meals for breakfast and lunch that your child will enjoy eating. The staff works hard each day to encourage and assist students in making wise food decisions. We try to introduce different fruits and vegetables to provide new taste adventures for our students as well.

Northwestern Local Schools participates in the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs.

Our menus comply with the new Meal Pattern Guidelines as established by the USDA. Menus are sent home at the start of the school year. In addition, these menu’s, along with lunch prices, are shown on our website. You are welcome to join your child(ren) for lunch anytime. You will need to check in at the building office to obtain a visitor pass.


EZ Pay is offered to assist in depositing money in your student’s meal account. To access the EZ Pay link, click on the Parent Resources tab found on our district web page, then click on EZ Pay under Important Links. If you need assistance, your questions can be directed to EZ Pay at 1-866-MY-EZpay (1-866-693-9729). You will need your student’s ID#. First-time users can obtain information regarding the ID# by calling the building office at Elementary: 964-3240; JR/SR High at 964-1324. Low balance notifications can be enabled on your EZPay site as well to assist in keeping funds available for your student(s). District policy allows students to charge their lunch twice, then an alternate meal will be provided until the account is brought current. Charges are not permitted at breakfast or during the last two weeks of school.
