Menu & Lunch Program
- Free meals include all entrees (except Subway at High Schools) with fruit/veggies and/or milk.
- For eLearners as well as any kids 18 and under that do not attend schools that Nutrition Services operates, we will begin weekly remote meal bag pickups at all neighborhood Elementary and Middle Schools in Douglas County every Friday from 1-2 pm.
- The start date for remote bag pickups is Friday, September 18th. These bags will contain 5 breakfast/lunches for eLearners/siblings and 3 breakfast/lunches for Hybrid learners. Meal pickups do NOT require pre-order.
- Simply pull up to our curbside pickup locations and request a meal for kids, just like our Summer Feeding sites.
- Kids do not need to attend DCSD Schools and do not need to be present for pickup.
- Two options are available each day with a variety of fruits and vegetables to choose from, as well as milk and water.
- Serving lines will look different as all items will be individually wrapped to ensure safety. No self serve bars, such as the Harvest Bar will be available. Kids will still have many items to choose from and age-appropriate ala carte items will be available on the main serving line.
- Many enhanced safety protocols will be in place to ensure the highest level of safety for the students as well as our staff. Pin pads will no longer be used and we are moving to a touchless barcode scanner in their place.
- Lunch prices for GVA students will be $3.25.
- Myschoolbucks is an online payment portal especially designed to allow parents to make quick and easy online payments to their children's school accounts.

- Lunch Menu
- We provide approximately 30,000 nutritious meals every day to students and staff.
- We participate in the National School Lunch Program and the National Breakfast Program (at select sites).
School meals are important to your child because they help develop sound nutritional habits by exposing students to a variety of foods.
- We offer many food choices and provide healthy fruits and vegetables daily.
- In addition, the well-nourished student has better attendance, is more attentive, better behaved, and has an increased energy level.
- All of these elements are tied to academic success.
School Meals are Safe
Food safety is our first and foremost concern. We have implemented a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) Program throughout the District to reduce the chance of a food-borne illness event. Temperatures of all food products are monitored throughout production and service.
School Meals are Nutritious
- School meals contain 30 percent or less of total calories from fat, less than 10 percent total calories from saturated fat, and 35 percent or less of total calories from sugar.
School Meals are Balanced
- Every day, students choose their meals from a variety of fresh fruits and fresh vegetables, whole-grain breads and cereals, lean meats, and low-fat dairy products.
- Each school has a Harvest Bar which features a variety of fresh produce in season.
Parents are welcome!
We invite our parents and families to come and see how school lunch has changed.
- Parents are always welcome!
- We are proud of our program and our hard-working employees and we encourage you to eat with your child.
- DCSD Nutrition Services invites all parents to have lunch with their children at any time during the school year.
- The cost is just $3.50 for an adult meal without milk; with milk, the price is $4.25.
- We hope to see you soon!
