Nutrition and School Meals

Nutrition & Meal Service at Charlottesville City Schools

Icon of school lunch tray (apple, sandwich, milk)Great news! All students attending Charlottesville City Schools are eligible to receive a free nutritious breakfast and lunch each day at school. You do not need to complete any application.

Charlottesville City Schools strives to serve fresh, healthy, and tasty meals. We offer breakfast and lunch. When possible, we purchase local food and cook from scratch to minimize salt, sugar, and fat. We also provide salads to offer choices for everyone, including vegan and vegetarian students. Out of respect to our Jewish and Muslim students, no pork products are served. All meals follow USDA guidelines.

Nutrition Website for Menus and More

On our dedicated school nutrition web site,  you will find:

  • Menus for School Lunch, Breakfast, and Snacks
  • For students at Buford and CHS who wish to buy a la carte items, create accounts through My Payments Plus (balance checks are free, but payments will incur a fee of approximately 4 percent).
    • To find the student ID number to create My Payments Plus account, log into PowerSchool and click on the Grades and Attendance tab.
