The cost of a standard regular lunch is $5.40 or students have the option of choosing a larger portion for $6.40. All lunch orders and payments must be made in advance. (No additional lunches will be available for those who do not pay and order by the prior day deadline of 9:00 am - See below for the PVSD Meal Charge Policy.) Any lunch cancellations must be made by 1:00 am day of lunch service. Lunch is available to all students every school day, including field trips and minimum days. Contact your school office to order.

Because all children are entitled to a nutritious lunch, the National School Lunch Program provides support for families through free or reduced-price lunches.  We encourage all families to review the material on eligibility and income guidelines and to complete a free and reduced-price meal application if they think they might qualify.  Please note that applications must be renewed annually.

Meal Charge Policy

Payments for Meals and Meal Charges

With the exception of students who are eligible to receive meals at no cost, students may pay on a per-meal basis or may submit payments in advance. Encouraging families to pre-pay for meals can help to ensure children have consistent access to meals.

Parents/guardians shall be notified by the Lunch Is Served website whenever their account has a low balance. This online payment platform includes an optional feature which families may use to automatically add money to their account when they reach a set dollar amount. Families using these systems may also set up a “low balance warning” to ensure they are notified promptly when a payment is needed.

All meals must be prepaid and pre-ordered through the vendor website. There are no ‘charge’ options at the time of lunch service. This helps parents avoid unauthorized charges by their student and ensures there is no accumulation of unpaid debt.

If your family is having financial trouble, we encourage you to apply for free or reduced priced meals anytime during the school year. Applications and instructions are available at each school site, the district office, and online at

Availability and Alternate Meals

All meals are preordered, and delivered accordingly. Because the number of lunches sent by the vendor correlates with the number of lunches pre-ordered, there are no extras to use as ‘emergency lunches.’ At times, it may seem there are several lunches leftover as lunch service comes to an end. These have been preordered and are reserved for the student(s) who ordered them. They may not be given out to another student. This policy is in place to avoid the instance where a student who has pre-ordered arrives late to lunch service and finds that their meal has been given to someone else. In addition, due to dietary restrictions and allergy concerns it is best practice to not provide lunches without parent consent.

PVSD knows the importance of nutrition in the need to stay focused during the day. For this reason, a nutritionally adequate alternative meal is available upon request for students without a lunch. This meal includes fruit, vegetable, whole grain cereal, milk, and an optional snack- and is provided free of charge.
