 WELCOME TO LA VEGA ISD'S CHILD NUTRITION DEPARTMENT
 
 
Mission

The mission of the La Vega Independent School District Child Nutrition Office, recognizing the vital relationship between nutrition and education, is to ensure that every student is offered a high quality, well balanced, nutritious meal at breakfast as well as lunch, with friendly service, by a quality staff observing high sanitation and safety standards, utilizing cost effective management practices, and following the child nutrition program guidelines.
 
 
The National School Lunch and Breakfast Program at La Vega ISD is planned and managed by ARAMARK Food Services. We take pride in providing La Vega students with well-balanced, nutritious meals.

In compliance with the National School Lunch Program, applications for free and reduced-priced meals are available in the front office of each school. Please follow the application directions carefully so your application can be processed quickly. If you have more than one child attending LVISD schools, combine their names on one application form.

If you received free/reduced-priced meals last year, your children will continue to receive meal benefits the first 30 days of school. During that time, a new application must be completed for free/reduced meals to continue.

All funds remaining in your child’s food service account can be refunded. Requests for refunds or requests to place restrictions on your child’s account can be sent via email to the Child Nutrition secretary, Liza Garrett.
 
 
This online service also provides you with the ability to view your child's account balance at any time, whether or not you use the online deposit.
