Culinary Nutrition Services (Food Services)


Due to a recent change in Federal Law all children in the district will now receive breakfast and lunch for FREE regardless of their meal status. This program will continue from now until December 31, 2020. Extra Meals and Ala Carte items will still be charged at regular rates. Students will still need their ID cards to receive their meals. If a student is attending school they can receive their meals in their buildings. Children not in school can receive their meals on the Wednesday pickup site for the CVVA students.

COVID-19 Meal Service

We have strived to keep our meal service as close to our normal procedures as possible. Students will be served in the cafeteria following all COVID 19 safety precautions.
We are starting the school year with 2 breakfast options each day at all schools. At the elementary level we will also offer 2 meal options at lunch.
In the middle schools we will have 4 meal options.
At the high school, due to them leaving early we will offer bag lunches for them to grab and take with them as they leave.
In addition to this students at the secondary level will be offered the chance to take 3 bagged breakfast and lunch meals with them on either Tuesday or Friday to have for the 3 days they are not in school. The students will need to sign up on Tuesday or Friday morning in their schools to receive these meals.

FOR Cumberland Valley Virtual Academy Students:

2020-2021 Cumberland Valley School District Nutrition Services Department

The Cumberland Valley Nutrition Service Department subscribes to the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP) for all school levels in the district. Our primary mission is to provide all CV students with nutritious menu offerings by using fresh ingredients and quality sourced products. We believe in using recipes that not only taste great but are nutritionally balanced too. Our team of food service professionals are dedicated in providing quality food choices to promote a healthier future for all children.

Each day, the school cafeterias offer food components that are identified in the National School Lunch Program. The components are grains, fruits, vegetables, meat or meat alternate and fluid milk. We encourage all students to take all five components when purchasing a lunch meal but they are only required to take three of the five components and one must be a fruit or vegetable to make it a meal. In addition, students are only required to select three of the four components for breakfast meals.


The federal standards, required by the USDA Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, allow schools to offer healthier a la carte snacks to children, while eliminating foods with “empty calories.” Menu items that meet the new regulations will feature “whole grain rich” grain and the first ingredient must be a fruit, vegetable, protein or dairy component. The new mandate will require food items to meet specified nutrient values in calorie, sodium, fat and sugar counts.
