An Award-Winning Commitment to Fresh, Local, and Healthy Meals

Charlottesville City Schools strives to serve fresh, local, healthy, and tasty meals to our students, supplying breakfast and lunch as well as a snack for our after-school programs.

To learn more and see menus, visit our dedicated school nutrition web site.

Our policy about school meals and snacks (JHCH) establishes that students with an unpaid balance will be allowed to make meal choices from the posted school menu.

  • Even though all school meals will be free during 2021-22, Virginia still accepts applications for free/reduced meals this year. We encourage families to apply, especially those new to Charlottesville City Schools.
