Free & Reduced Price Meals

Fresh Tomato Cucumber Salad


As you may already be aware, breakfast and lunch are now FREE for BVSD students. Students will receive a full breakfast, along with one entree (with unlimited salad/fruit to accompany the entree) for free each day next year. Even though lunch is now free, it is still very important that families complete the Free & Reduced Price School Meal application, as it waives and reduces fees (including athletics/activities and school technology fees) district-wide for many families, can impact transportation for some families, and impacts important funding for individual schools. It also qualifies some families for a 50% reduction in Lifelong Learning tuition, and waived tuition for BVSD Online classes (excluding the $50 registration fee). Child Care families will continue to apply for financial assistance through the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP).

If you are unsure whether you qualify for the Free & Reduced Price School Meal program please see the eligibility chart on the right side of this page.
