Our motto in Child Nutrition Services is “Our students are our customers.” We are committed to serving nourishing and satisfying meals at a reasonable cost. This is achieved by offering whole grain breads and pastas, vegetarian options, full salad bars with fresh fruits and vegetables and low fat milk options daily. We also strive to make breakfast and lunchtime fun by offering promotions like the Harvest of the Month, School BBQ’s and Alphabet Apple to Zucchini Salad Bars. It is our goal to provide meals that contribute to balanced nutrition and good health because we believe in the important fact that a healthy mind is a learning mind.

The Chula Vista Elementary School District will extend its “grab-and-go” meal service through the upcoming two-week Spring Break, i.e. the weeks of March 23-27 and March 30-April 3. The meal distribution will take place at nine regionally located school sites across the District. However, there will be only ONE DAY for meal distribution each of those weeks, with a box for each student that will contain five days’ worth of meals.

The hours are:10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Tuesday, March 24,
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Tuesday, March 31

Students who are receiving meals must be physically present. Meals may consist of packaged, refrigerated, and frozen items. Heating instructions will be included for entrees.

NOTICE: On July 1, 2018 CVESD increased the Paid Lunch Meal Price to $2.50. The $.50 increase was USDA, Federal and State mandated. 

The lunch meal price will not affect students who qualify for free or reduced price meals. 

The 2019-2020 school year meal prices are:
Lunch $2.50 and Breakfast $1.00.

Eligible students may receive their meals at no cost or at a reduced cost (National School Lunch Program) based on your household income and size. To decrease the economic burden on those families that qualify for the reduced price meals, the District subsidizes the cost of these student meals.

Please see the Unpaid Meal Charge Standards - effective July 1,2017

For additional information please contact the Child Nutrition Services Office at 619-425-9600 x1400.

My Tray
In response to the increasing concern for childhood obesity, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has issued its first major rewriting of nutritional guidelines for government-subsidized school lunches and breakfasts in more than 15 years. These changes require meals tobe healthier and served in smaller portions, with more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, with less sodium and no trans fat.

MyTray is our new educational campaign for the elementary school meal program in Chula Vista, which communicates the USDA's new regulations for school meals to our students, parents, and staff. Our nutrition programs support the new regulations and have actively promoted the consumption of fruits and vegetables through our salad bars, service windows, and nutrition education. The MyTray campaign utilizes signage and visual elements to identify key steps in the service line to ensure compliance with the new regulations.

Perhaps the most visible change to the program is that students who get school meals will be required to have at least one serving of vegetable or fruit on their tray.

To discover more about new Federal Regulations for school meals, please visit the USDA's National School Lunch Program website.
