IMPORTANT FOOD SERVICE UPDATE AUGUST 24, 2021
Food supply chain issues and shortages are happening nationwide. Our district is also experiencing the inability to obtain many of our foods and supplies through vendors. We will do our best to provide the posted menu but due to the unavailability of items the menus will be subject to change. Students may be notified of menu changes during the morning announcements. We appreciate your patience and understanding! We look forward to providing all of our students with free meals this school year.
OVERVIEW OF FOOD SERVICE DEPARTMENT
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 four 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 department and supplies and salaries are paid through school meal purchases and federal reimbursement from the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program.
Breakfast and lunch for the 2021-2022 will be free of charge to all Forest Hills students.
