Beginning Monday, May 4, 2020, the District will move to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday meal distribution at nine school sites listed below.  These schools have a student population where 50 percent or more are on free/reduced priced meal program. Please keep the following in mind when planning:

  • Students are required to be present when receiving meals.
  • District and school staff will start “Grab and Go Distribution” of meal bags at 10 a.m. and will stop once all bags are distributed on a first come, first served basis.
  • Meal bags will contain two days of servings each on Monday and Wednesday. 
  • Bags will be placed into automobile trunks—they will not be handed through vehicle windows, unless absolutely necessary, for the protection of both our staff and the vehicle occupants.
  • Meals are intended for our neediest children between the ages of 1 to 18. Servings on Fridays will also include meals for the weekend.

The nine schools to serve as distribution sites are:

Rosebank Elementary School

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.
