Updates & Announcementsy

Effective Monday March 15th, we are required to scan student barcodes and/or student ID cards for every meal kit served. Please make sure you bring your barcode and/or student(s) ID to pick up meals

7 Day Meal Kits will continue to be served from 11-1 on Monday's only at all 6 TVUSD middle school locations (addresses listed in the text below) 

Disclaimer: The meals we serve on Monday’s are intended to provide breakfast and lunch for a full week. Students participating in hybrid learning should consume meals prior to arriving on campus. For students enrolled in child care or who will remain on campus after in-person learning is complete, please pack your breakfast and/or lunch from home. Emergency meals will be available for students who forget their meals however, those meals can not be provided for free.


Quick FAQ 

What if I don’t have my student(s) barcode/ID?

When you arrive to pickup meals, notify our staff you do not have your barcode/student ID. They will look to see if they have one available for you. If not they will write down your students' first & last name, grade, and school site they attend. Then the following week they will have a barcode for you to pickup and bring with you each time you pick up meals

What if I pick up meals for a non-enrolled TVUSD sibling?

We will continue serving non-enrolled TVUSD siblings as long as the sibling is present with you when you come to pick up meals

TVUSD is offering FREE meals to all enrolled TVUSD students and their siblings- come to the middle school closest to you! Siblings not enrolled in TVUSD must be present to receive a meal kit. Although all meals are provided free of charge, our District still needs families to complete a meal application! District-wide free and reduced numbers do more than support the Nutrition Program, they affect our District's school budget. If you think you may qualify, apply today! 

Check out our menus! Note: All items will go home cold/frozen. Recipes and cooking instructions are available here.

If your student requires a meal accommodation or has a food allergy please email Amanda Shears, Assistant Director, at All meal accommodations require a medical note.

If you were participating in the program last school year, we need a new application this school year! Make sure you fill yours out today—it’s quick and easy!
