Food Service

The Forest Hills Food Service Department operates in all nine schools and has kitchens in each school to prepare fresh, nutritious meals for students. The department strives to promote healthy eating habits among students by incorporating whole grains, low-fat dairy options, fresh produce and low sodium products in every meal at an affordable price. 

For three consecutive years, the entire Food Services staff across Forest Hills School District earned Clean Kitchen Awards from the Hamilton County Public Health Department. The awards honor food service facilities, including restaurants, hospitals, grocery stores, eateries and schools, for outstanding efforts in sanitation and safety education. The honor reflects Forest Hills’ commitment to excellence, where cafeterias district-wide serve lunch to more than 3,500 students each day.

Forest Hills’ Food Services is self-sufficient, meaning no local tax dollars fund the CNS department and supplies and salaries are paid through school meal purchases and federal reimbursement from the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program.


Free breakfast and lunch meals will be available Monday through Friday to children 18 years of age and under, or to anyone between the ages of 19 and 21 who is determined by a state or local public-educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled.

To receive a free meal, indvivuals should arrive at a serving site 15 minutes before the serving time; no preregistration is needed.  All meals must be eaten at the site. No meals will be distributed on Tuesday, July 4, 2017.

The Summer Food Program is federally funded through the Department of Education.
