CCPS Child Nutrition Program
Calvert County Public Schools participates in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs and offers nutritious meals every school day. Both breakfast and lunch service are available at all school locations. School meals offer a variety of food choices and meet nutrition standards established by the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act and the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Free and/or Reduced Price Meal Eligibility
Some students may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Eligibility is typically determined by household size and income. Household Meal Benefit Applications are sent home with each student at the beginning of the school year and are available on the school system website. Parents need only submit one application per household if they believe their children qualify for free or reduced-price meals.
Student Meal Accounts
Each school cafeteria has a computerized debit system which allows parents to deposit money on their child’s very own cafeteria account. Students enter their assigned pin number at the cashier’s station where meals and à la carte purchases are then subtracted from the student’s account. Cash is always accepted, although parents may also make deposits online utilizing the mySchoolBucks.com website. The mySchoolBucks.com site allows you to view your student's account balance, monitor purchases and set up low balance notifications free of charge, however, please note that there is a fee assessed when using this service to deposit funds on to an account.
Meal prices are as follows: Breakfast $1.65; Reduced-Price Breakfast $0.30; Elementary Lunch $2.65; Secondary Lunch $2.80; Reduced-Price Lunch $0.40; Student Milk $0.55. Menus, nutrition information, meal prices and à la carte prices are also available on this website.
