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 next year. 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.
