Food Services

Since 2008, FIS has partnered with ARAMARK to provide students, faculty, staff, parents and visitors with healthy, delicious food. Our cafeterias offer daily vegetarian dishes, a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables – and fewer sugary snacks and drinks.

Cashless Payment System

On the Oberursel Campus, Grade 2-12 students use a cashless payment system. Because it is much faster to swipe a card than handle individual cash transactions, the cashless system helps ensure students have ample time to enjoy their food. All Oberursel Campus Elementary and Upper School students must have an electronic ID card to purchase food as cash is not accepted.

Oberursel Campus Primary Students

Students at the FIS Primary School order their lunch daily at school and use lunch tickets rather than the cashless payment system.

Wiesbaden Campus Students

Students on our Wiesbaden Campus use an online ordering system rather than the cashless payment system.

For more detailed information on the cashless payment system and ordering lunches in the Primary School and on the Wiesbaden Campus, please see the FAQs below.

Why is the Oberursel Campus cafeteria cashless?

The cashless system provides increased efficiency in the cafeteria as it is much faster to swipe a card than handle individual cash transactions.

Do students in the Primary School use an FIS ID Card to make purchases?

No. Primary School students use lunch tickets, which can be purchased in the Primary School Cafeteria from 8:15-9:30 every school day.

How do I register my child for lunch on the Wiesbaden Campus?

The Wiesbaden Campus uses an online ordering system for lunches. If you have already registered your children and credited their account, you may place your orders online (login required).

Can you explain the pricing and menu choices for the different grade level?
