Food Services

We look forward to feeding your student with a nutritious breakfast and lunch in the cafeteria each day. Fueling as many students as possible for their day of learning is our goal in the food service department.

Lunch Prices

We are pleased to inform you that the Central Valley School District is participating in the Seamless Summer Option (SS) for the 2021-22 school year.

All enrolled students of the District are eligible to receive one nutritional breakfast and one lunch each school day at no charge to the household. A la carte items are still available for purchase. Student accounts must reflect a positive balance for such additional purchases to be made. 

Although no further action is required for students to receive breakfast and lunch at no charge, the District is still encouraging families to fill out the Free and Reduced application as P-EBT and other benefits are based on the student's Free and Reduced status. 

Charging Policy and Negative Balances

In accordance with new Anti Lunch-Shaming regulations, students with any balance will not be denied a complete reimbursable meal. However, students with a negative balance may not purchase a la carte items or extras. In order to receive a complete reimbursable meal, students must take 3 of the 5 components with at least 1 choice being a fruit or a vegetable. Please note: students are not required to take milk to receive a complete reimbursable meal.

Families are encouraged to see if they qualify for free or reduced-price meals by completing the annual application. Paper applications can be found on the district website, or online applications can be completed at This application may be submitted anytime throughout the school year.

Parents/Guardians are responsible for paying all debts accumulated during the school year. Unpaid debts are not erased at the end of a school year but will be carried over to the following year. Cash, check and online payments may be used to fund student balances. Please make checks out to Central Valley Cafeteria Fund.

Parents/Guardians may see their child’s updated balance at any time during the year with an online account through K12PaymentCenter using their child's District ID number. Contact the Food Service Office if you do not know your child's District ID number. Please note: this is not the 3 or 4-digit PIN students use to access their accounts at school. K12PaymentCenter updates student balances daily and also displays student transactions histories so parents can track how much their students are purchasing.

Parents/Guardians may also contact the cafeteria for their child’s updated balance at any time. Please feel free to contact the Director of Food Services with any additional questions or to arrange payment of a negative balance.
