CVSD has partnered with The Nutrition Group, a food service management company which manages the District's food service department. The Nutrition Group provides a variety of nutritious school meals to all our students. The well-being of our students is a top priority, and we believe that proper nutrition is essential for good health and readiness to learn.

Free Meal Program for All Children Under Age 18In September, the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture announced an extension of the Free Breakfast and Lunch Program, providing free breakfast and lunch meals to all children ages 0-18, through June 30, 2021. The Pennsylvania Department of Education has provided guidance to schools on how to implement this program.
Chartiers Valley School District is now offering FREE breakfast and FREE lunch to every student, every day. This includes to-go meals for students learning virtually, and weekend meals as well.
To-go meals for virtual days (both CV Cyber and Hybrid) must be ordered using this Google Form. Orders must be placed 24 hours in advance and picked up at the following times:
- Complete one survey per student!
- When picking up meals, students and/or parents will need to provide their student's ID number.
- Orders must be submitted at least 24 hours in advance.
- Menus for to-go meals will be available below, under the Menus heading.
- CV Cyber Students can pick up to-go meals on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30 am -12:00 noon at the High School.
- 2-Day Hybrid students with last names beginning in A-K can pick up meals for their remote days at the end of the day each Tuesday before leaving school.
- 2-Day Hybrid students with last names beginning in L-Z can pick up their to-go meals each Thursday before going home.
- 4-Day Hybrid students can pick up Friday, Saturday, and Sunday meals on Thursdays before going home.
At this time, the free meals for all students will only run until June 30, 2021, at which time meal pay statuses will return to Paid, Free, or Reduced rates based on qualifications. Be sure to submit your free/reduced meal applications as soon as possible to avoid any gap in benefits. Applications can be found under the Free and Reduced Meals heading below.
In the future, upon completion of the free meal program, all Chartiers Valley students, whether enrolled in Hybrid, Hybrid+2, or CV Cyber Academy, will have the opportunity to purchase daily breakfast and lunch. Free and reduced-price meals will be provided at no/low cost to families who qualify.
