The Chula Vista Elementary School District participates in the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. Breakfast and lunch are served every day at each of the 45 elementary school sites including 16 preshool programs. Many schools throughout the distric offers a second chance breakfast for those students who did not get a breakfast prior to school starting. Please click on the school list link to contact your specific school for more information.
Breakfast Price: $1.00
Lunch Price: $2.00
Eligible students may receive free or reduced meals at no cost for lunch and free or reduced meals at no cost for breakfast based on income and household size. To decrease the economic burden of those families that qualify for the reduced price meals, our District is choosing to pick up the cost of all meals. If you think you may qualify, please see the CNS Quick Links titled, "Meal Application Information."
Child Nutrition Services follows the "Offer vs. Serve" program as stipulated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Each site allows the student to choose 1 of 3 entrees for lunch, an option of either 1% white milk or non-fat white milk, and as many fresh fruits and vegetables as they want. For breakfast, a student may choose from 1 of 4 entrees, fruit, and milk.
We strive to offer the best quality products in our cafeterias and are continually looking for new ways to bring in more appealing and nutritious foods. We are highly regulated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in that we are not able to serve just anything in our schools. We are required to serve a wide variety of fruits and vegetables as well as whole grain products that are lower in sodium and saturated fat. Everything we serve is a healthy counterpart to what may look like a "fast food" menu. For more information on the contents of the menu items we serve, please see our "Eat Right!" Newsletter.
For more detailed information on the items we serve, please contact our dietitian, Alexis Beltran, at 619-425-9600 x1406.
Your student's safety is of the utmost importance to us in Child Nutrition Services. We work as a team with our our dietitian, parents, nurses, and cafeteria staff to ensure the proper meal accommodation is made for the students that require it. If you feel that your child needs a special meal accomodation, please contact your student's school nurse to obtain information about the Medical Statement for Special Meal Accommodations form.
