School Lunch Nourished...Respected...Cared For

Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation knows that good nutrition and learning are dependent on each other.  MVCSC strives to provide healthy and nutritious meals students enjoy, which will keep students fueled and attentive to learning. All meals and snacks served are certified to meet strict state and federal child nutrition regulations.



What's New!

  • Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year! Those new to the District may check out the Food Services Directive for information about nutrition, building-a-meal, meal payments, and more! 
  • Federal funding and legislation for universal free meals for all students is coming to an end on June 30th, 2022. Beginning July 1st, 2022, the Food Services Department will change back to the way it operated before March 2020: 
  1. Breakfast and lunch will still be available to all students; however, they will not be free to all students. That means that families will need to complete the Free and Reduced-Price Meal Benefit Application to qualify for free or reduced-price meals and textbook assistance. The application will be available via Skyward Family Access after July 12th, applications received prior to July 1st will not be effective for the 2022-2023 school year. We are strongly encouraging all households to apply for benefits.

  2. All students will need to carry their ID badge on them for the cashier to ring them out.  This is also a security measure in place to ensure the safety of our students. 

  3. You can check your student’s account balance, recent transactions, or complete a Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application via Skyward Family Access.

  4. You can add funds to your students lunch account via eFunds. More information on eFunds is below.

MVCSC utilizes the Offer vs. Serve program, which empowers students to make decisions about what they want to eat, while ensuring that each meal is balanced and nutritious.
