National School Lunch Program

Participation in the National School Lunch Program requires that all students have access to lunch. Lunches are scheduled at various times during the school day. In high schools with block scheduling, some students' schedules may not show a lunch block. However, access to the National School Lunch Program is provided during a limited time frame between or during blocks.

Online Payment of Student Meals

Virginia Beach City Public Schools offers parents the opportunity to make payments – via SchoolCafe– for their child’s meals (breakfast, lunch and a la carte items) using Visa, Mastercard or a debit card. A small per-transaction convenience fee of 5 percent will be charged for each payment. This online service allows parents of students to prepay money directly into their child’s account; monitor their child’s food purchases; set up low-balance email reminders; and schedule recurring payments.

In-person payment of Student Meal

In addition to paying cash for meals, all schools use a computerized point of service system, which allow students to have individual accounts for prepayment of meals/snacks and payment at the time of service. Student accounts are used for full price meals, reduced price meals, free meals and a la carte purchases.

For additional information regarding the prepayment of meals/snacks please use one of the following resources:
