Food Service


Welcome to the Food Service Department. We look forward to serving your children a nutritional and satisfying breakfast and lunch daily. 


Please contact our Food Service Director, Stephanie Herge at the Jefferson Middle School, 419-695-2523 if you have any questions, concerns or comments. 

LinqConnect is a website where a parent/guardian will put money into a student account and the student draws from his/her account at meal time instead of carrying money to the cafeteria each day. Money can be deposited on line or in the school office on a yearly, monthly or weekly basis. Further information can be found under the Parents tab on the website and then Lunch Accounts / School Fees.

Offer vs Serve Policy: Offer vs Serve provision of the school lunch program means students are offered five food components each day from within the federally-required traditional lunch pattern. Delphos City Schools offers this to students in grades K-12. All students are encouraged to take all items offered on the meal. However, under Offer vs Serve, students need only take a minimum of three of the five food components offered, one of which must be a fruit or a vegetable component. Offer vs Serve allows students to refuse a food item they do not like, encourages freedom of choice, and helps to eliminate waste. 


Breakfast is served daily at all buildings except when school is delayed. Students are to come directly to the cafeteria from the bus in the morning,

Free and reduced meal applications are accepted the entire school year. 



Parents will be notified of any negative lunch balances and may result in your child being served an alternate meal.
