Food Services

The Westlake City Schools Food Service Department is dedicated to providing healthy, appealing and nutritional affordable meals to students and staff members. The 36 full- and part-time employees prepare an average 230,000 meals annually. WCSD is part of the National School Lunch Program and follows USDA nutritional guidelines for meals and snacks. Meals are structured to provide age appropriate calorie levels, 30% fat or less, less than 10% saturated fat, and under 1500mg of sodium. The department also participates in the district wellness plan by creating healthy choice meals and snacks at all locations.

A variety of colorful fresh vegetables are offered daily on a rotating basis (dark green, red orange, and other choices). Fresh fruit is offered every day and brought in from local orchards (Quarry Hill) when in season. Potato items such as french fries are baked. All of our snack items meet guidelines for “Smart Snacks for Schools”.

School meals are a great value and convenience for busy families. Lunch meal prices has been increased to $2.75 in the Elementary and Intermediate Schools, $3.25 in the Middle School, and $3.25 or $3.75 in the High School. All lunches include milk. Click here for ala carte pricing.
