2022-2023 Meal Pricing
One breakfast and lunch per day will be available to all SVUSD students at no charge for the 2022-2023 school year through the California Universal Meal Program. Even if your child qualified for reduced-price meals or did not qualify for free or reduced through the NSLP program, your student can still get a free breakfast and lunch daily. At no point will your child be asked to pay for their meal unless they have already received a free one for the day and are returning for seconds. Single cartons of milk and bottles of water are sold at our Elementary Schools, and a variety of a-la-carte items are also offered daily during breakfast and lunch at our Secondary Schools. These items are not included in the free meals for 2022-2023. Any student who wishes to purchase a-la-carte items must either bring money to purchase the items, or have money in their lunch account. No student will be charged into the negative for a-la-carte items or second meals.

WELCOME TO CHILD NUTRITION

Thankful for school lunch

The supply chain for our student meals is very tight. Vendors are currently unable to fulfill complete orders due to multiple districts ordering food. The demand is higher than their supply at the moment. 

Please keep in mind: Due to vendor limited availability, all menu items are subject to change without notice. The posted menus are for your convenience but may change. We are doing our best to keep to our menu. Our priority continues to be to provide nutritious meals to our students daily. Our Online Menus are updated continuously and will provide the most accurate information about your child's meals.

We are currently unable to get rice. Our suppliers are also anticipating issues with the following items:

  • BBQ sauce packets 
  • Smaller packets of Italian and ranch dressing
  • Rice
  • Ketchup, marinara, and salsa items may have issues later this year due to the drought.
  • Turkey lunchmeat and any other turkey-based items
  • Butter 

Please visit our page about Free Meals for the 2022-2023 School Year for information on what qualifies as a free meal.

The Child Nutrition department is committed to providing healthy school meals to the students of the Simi Valley Unified School District in order to support student academic success and promote healthful eating habits that lead to lifelong positive nutrition practices. More than 6,500 lunches are served each school day. 

We strive to meet or exceed the meal standards recommended by the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Our menus include fresh fruit, vegetables, whole-grain rich products, fat-free and low-fat milk, lower levels of sodium, saturated fat and zero trans fat in our meals.

Free, reduced and full paid meals are served using an automated accounting system that protects the privacy of all students.

*Please check with your office for breakfast times at your child's school.

****Application for the federal National School Lunch Program for Free or Reduced Price Lunches is not required to qualify for the California Universal Meal Program. If you do not wish to disclose income information or elect not to fill out an application for any reason, your child may still eat free breakfast and lunch in the cafeteria daily.****
