Food Services Updates

Food Services Update 01/13/2023

Starting with the 2022-2023 school year, the Office of Food Services is pleased to offer scratch menu items at all of our school cafeterias. Menus can be found on SchoolCafe.com.

If your student attends a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school, they are able to receive breakfast and lunch meals at no cost. Please visit this site to see if you child’s school is qualified as a CEP school.

If your student is attending a non-CEP school, please ensure you complete a Free and Reduced Price Meal Application to see if your household qualifies for meal benefits. Applications can be completed online at https://www.schoolcafe.com/virginiabeachcps.

Upcoming School Nutrition Celebrations:
• March 6-10, 2023: National School Breakfast Week
• March 12-18, 2023: National Child and Adult Care Food Program Week
• May 5, 2023: School Lunch Hero Day

Should you have any questions, please feel free to call our office at 757-263-1101 or e-mail us at [email protected].
