Attention: Food Service changes for 2022/2023 school year The USDA Child Nutrition Program waivers, which have allowed us to serve free meals to all students for the last 2 years are expected to expire at the end of this school year. This means we will return to pre-pandemic operations for the 2022/2023 school year. Students’ meals will be priced on the student’s status as either free, reduced, or paid as determined by the eligibility form or direct certification. Applications will be available after July 22, 2022.
Breakfast: $1.50/$0.30 for reduced
Lunch: $3.00/$0.40 for reduced
VCS is committed to providing delicious hot meals to our students. Please know that menus are subject to change, and that we will do our best to get as “close as possible” substitutes for items that are unavailable.
We appreciate your patience and understanding!
Eagle Eats 6th-12th Grade
A student who does not want the menu meal scheduled that day may fill out this form by 9:00 am. The meal will be a grab and go from the half door on the mezzanine near milk coolers. This meal still falls under the free, reduced and paid program. Failure to pick up a meal, a charge to the students account in the category in which they fall will still occur. All Extra Purchases are still required to go through the cashier line.
Direct any questions to Tammy Wilt, Food Service Director at email@example.com or via phone at (330) 788-8088 extension 1113.
National School Lunch Program (SSO) & School Breakfast Program, CACFP, FFV
Valley Christian Schools offer breakfast and lunch each day in partnership with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The USDA recognizes 5 food groups important at each meal: grains, meat/meat alternatives, fruit, vegetable, and dairy.
Each of our schools participates in Offer vs. Serve, where our students select each component of the meal they want instead of our staff serving the whole meal.
Students must select at least 3 components (with at least one fruit/vegetable component) to create a complete meal. Our staff is here to guide students on selecting a complete meal. VCS offers a dinner program under CACFP. Students who stay after school at Central Campus for any reason may receive a dinner, up to 30 minutes after dismissal.
