School Nutrition and Cafeteria Information

CAFETERIA INFORMATION

We are proud of our award-winning School Nutrition Program. Each week our school cafeterias feature locally grown produce through the Farm to School Program. Student meals can be prepaid at your child’s school or using www.MyPaymentsPlus.com. Students use their student ID numbers to access the online payment system. These numbers are given out during business night at each school on August 14. For information related to cafeteria services, included the Free and Reduced Meal Program, please contact 556-5604.

FREE AND REDUCED MEALS

If your child received free or reduced priced meals for the 13-14 school year, the benefit will continue for the first 30 days of school.   Benefits will end on September 29.  Please submit a free and reduced meal application (available in your school office or the school nutrition office 804-556-5604) before the deadline.

Households that are receiving SNAP or TANF for their children as of July 1 may not have to fill out an application. School officials will notify you in writing of your child(ren)’s eligibility for free meal benefits. Once notified, your child(ren) will receive free meals unless you tell the school that you do not want benefits.

If you are not notified by August 15, 2014, you must submit an application. The application must contain the names of all students in the household, the SNAP or TANF case number, and the signature of an adult household member.

 If you do not receive SNAP or TANF benefits for your child(ren), complete the application and return it to the school division. If you do not list a SNAP or TANF case number for the child(ren) you are applying for, then the application must have the names of all students, the names of all other household members, the amount of income each person received last month, and how often the income was received. An adult household member must sign the application and include the last four digits of their social security number. If the person does not have a social security number, check the box provided indicating none. You or your child(ren) do not have to be U.S. citizens to qualify for free or reduced price meals.
