Attention: Food Service changes for 2022/2023 school yearThe 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 likely 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.

School Food Service departments across the country are starting to experience food supply chain issues. Some items like Chicken, bread/buns, salad mixes, muffins French toast, condiments and paper products are among the latest challenges for our food service department to receive.  

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!  We look forward to serving all of our students free breakfast and lunch this school year!

All Valley Christian School students will receive free breakfast and lunch this year per the USDA! All parents still need to complete a Free and Reduced Lunch Form (FRP).

Direct any questions to Tammy Wilt, Food Service Director at or via phone at (330) 788-8088 extension 1113.

National School Lunch Program & School Breakfast Program

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.
