Proper nutrition is essential for success in school and in life. The Great Oaks Food Service staff is dedicated to ensuring that students have healthy, delicious, nutritious meals.
Due to the hardships felt nationwide as a result of COVID-19, the USDA has extended free meals to all Great Oaks Career Campuses students until the end of the 2021/2022 school year. Students may receive one breakfast and one lunch daily at no cost. A breakfast meal includes grain, meat/meat alternate, fruit, and milk. A lunch meal includes grain, meat/meat alternate, vegetable, fruit, and milk. A-la-carte purchases will continue to be charged as usual. Students will not be able to purchase a-la-carte items with a negative account balance. Contact Great Oaks Career Campuses Food Service Department with questions, 513-612-3656.
The cafeterias at Great Oaks campuses are cashless; cash is not accepted at checkout during meals. Students will need to add money to their EZ Pay account online (See below) or by taking cash to their campus registrar prior to school starting and throughout the school year.
