Food Services Updates

Food Services Update 08/09/2022

The federal pandemic waivers that enabled our district to serve meals at no cost to all students have expired. Therefore, the Office of Food Services will be returning to normal/traditional operations for the 2022-2023 school year. Going back to pre-pandemic normal/traditional operations means that students will be charged for breakfast and lunch meals based on their individual eligibility (paid, reduced, free).

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

If your student will be 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.

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