The Chula Vista Elementary School District takes part in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program. Meals are served every school day. Students, including Kindergartners, may buy breakfast for $1.00 and lunch for $2.50. 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.


Breakfast & Lunch Menus

The cafeteria is open on all school days, including minimum days.  Breakfast is offered in the cafeteria each morning starting at 7:50 AM.  Each student is issued a meal card that will be debited each time the child eats breakfast or lunch.  Students who use their cards will receive lunch, even if their lunch accounts have a negative balance and parents are responsible for the cost.  Prepayments for at least 5 meals are encouraged.  Payments may be made in the cafeteria, in the school office, or online (see below in Online Services). Checks should be made payable to Cafeteria account, CVESD.  Parents and family members are welcome to come and buy lunch to share a special day with your child.
