Food Services & EZpay

Bexley School Nutrition

We are Food Service

Our Food Services Department focuses on quality nutrition, fulfilling meals including at least 50 percent fruit and vegetables, served in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The program works to expand students' tastes while also offering favorite foods. Middle and high school students can take up to four fruit or vegetable sides, an entrée, and milk, including a daily vegetarian soup and expanded salad bar.

It's Easy To EZPAY On-Line!

Bexley Schools' parents/guardians can pay most student fees and charges via EZpay, by using a credit and/or debit card:
  • cafeteria accounts
  • athletics
  • field trips
  • school dances
Parents can also check a student’s recent café purchases and set low balance reminders for free. To add money to the account there is a transaction costs of $2.50; EZpay allows multiple payments to be made at one time.  Because no personal or credit card information is kept online, the EZpay user must enter credit card information each time. The system is available only via the Internet, not in Bexley’s cafes or offices; visit the EZpay online payment system website.
 
You will need to have a personal email account and know your student's school ID number before opening an EZpay account.  
  
For more information about EZpay, call (866) 693-9729 or contact Julianna Carvi, Bexley’s Director of Food Services, or Kyle Smith, Treasurer (614) 231-7611.

Breakfast Every Day

Start the day the healthy way. Bexley Schools serves breakfast daily in all district cafeterias at a cost of $2.50 per student or adult. On the menu are whole grain-rich cereals, yogurts, muffins, hot items, juice, fruit and milk. 
 
Hours : 
  • 7:45am to 8:45am at the Cassingham Complex Café 
  • 7:45am to 8:15am at Montrose and Maryland Elementary Cafes 

Eat more vegetables!

Each Bexley elementary school café features a Veggie Bar, with Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers and a fifth vegetable like cauliflower or celery, depending on what is the season. The Veggie Bars help prepare children for a lifetime of healthy eating. The Veggie Bar comes with the purchase of a plate lunch or on its own for $1.00. 

Allergy, Intolerance, Personal Choice

Bexley is a “peanut- and tree nut-free zone” to safeguard students who have allergies.  Pork is only found in the pepperoni on the Donatos pizza we have delivered. We do not have pork in our meals we cook. 

Parents/guardians of students with food allergies should see the Health Forms section on Bexley Schools' Health Clinics page. If your child has a food intolerance, eg. lactose,  and you want to substitute juice for milk on the plate lunch please email Julianna Carvi with your request.
 
If you have a personal family choice (eg. vegetarian or vegan) we will make note of it on the student's account. However, if a student actively chooses to take an item that will not cause them medical harm we will allow to make that choice for themselves. 

Want to limit your child's purchasing?

We know learning about money is tricky and the school cafeteria is one of the first places children have the autonomy to make decsisions about spending. Sometimes they are making bad food decisions and you want to set limitations. We are here to support everyone, students and parents. 
 
The best way to see what your student is buying is to set up a free account on EZpay. You can see the last week's transactions. 
 
Set an automatic low balance reminder at a high dollar amount and you will be notified every time a purchase is made once that dollar amount is reached.  Eg. $100 low balance reminder with $99 in the account you will be notified everytime a transaction happens on the account. 
 
Email Julianna Carvi to restrict thier spending in general Eg. $4/day, or change specific access. Eg. no muffins, etc. Any limitation a parent/guardian requests stays on a student's account from grade to grade until a parent/guardian notifies us to remove it. You can also fill out this spending limit form, and send it with your child. 

What's allowed to be charged?

Only a full lunch or breakfast may be charged. 
 
All accounts must be in the positive by the last day of school.
 
You will be notified routinely and often if your student's account is in arrears. Please keep a positive balance on all accounts.  
 
A full meal is the entree, up to four fruit or vegetable options and milk. They may not charge anything else. Parents/Guardians are responsible for the price of the charged meal(s).  The district may pursue legal action against deliquent debts. 
 
See the Charging Policy for specific details.
