Volusia County Students Get Free Meals through 2020

Starting Wednesday, September 9, all students attending in-person classes in Volusia County Schools will receive their breakfast and lunch meals at no charge. Additionally, a free, weekly curbside meal service will be provided for children not attending in-person classes.

Most schools (see pre-registration form for locations) will offer the weekly curbside meal service for children age 18 and younger who are not attending in-person classes. This includes virtual learning students who are not attending VCS’ Traditional Classroom Setting option.

For the curbside meal service, families may pick up meals each Tuesday from 6:30-7 a.m. starting September 15, 2020. The program will operate through December 18, 2020. Meals will be bundled with five breakfasts and five lunches.

Registration for curbside meal service is required and must be completed weekly between 8 a.m. Tuesday and 11:59 p.m. Thursday for the following Tuesday’s pickup. Register for meals weekly using this form: https://forms.gle/vUWCh3GazNwN62966.

Parents must show their ID when picking up meals, as well as a form of ID for each student requesting meals. Current student ID cards or birth certificates are acceptable.

All schools will serve curbside meals, except for Manatee Cove Elementary (pickup at River Springs Middle), Timbercrest Elementary (pickup at Galaxy Middle), and Turie T. Small Elementary (pickup at Campbell Middle).

Students attending Ivy Hawn, Richard Milburn Academy West, Richard Milburn Academy East, and AMI Kids will pay for meals based on their current meal eligibility. 

All parents, regardless of where their children attend school are encouraged to apply for free or reduced meal benefits for this school year. Families may access the meal benefits application at https://www.vcsedu.org/schoolwaycafe/free-and-reduced-meal-applications.
