School Nutrition

TVCS has a goal to improve the nutritional quality of each Childs’ diet. Our schools provide an opportunity for optimal learning and good health by providing high quality food, excellent service and good nutrition at a reasonable cost. The School Nutrition Department works closely with teachers and parents to foster healthy eating habits and understand the importance of children developing a lifetime of healthy eating habits.


Our mission is to provide each student with a safe, well balanced, nutritious and affordable meal. We provide nutrition education and promote healthy eating habits. We provide healthy breakfasts, lunches and snacks so that the students of TVCS are ready to engage in the learning environment that prepares all students to become responsible citizens in a diverse, global society.


To create and encourage a culture of healthy eating habits that will form a foundation for a healthy lifestyle.  

Did you know?

  • In the United States, one in three kids are on track to develop diet-related illness in their lifetime.
  • Children who lack a quality diet are more likely to face a lifetime of challenges: they score lower on tests, miss more days of school, advance less in their careers, and raise children who are likely to repeat the same cycle.


TVCS Food and Nutrition Department operates under the School Breakfast Program (SBP) and the National School Lunch Program (NSLP)

The School Breakfast Program (SBP) is federally assisted meal program operating in public and non-public private schools and residential child care institutions. The SBP started in 1966 as a pilot project, and was made a permanent entitlement program by Congress in 1975.


The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally assisted meal program operating in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or no-cost lunches to children each school day. The program was established under the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act, signed into law by President Harry Truman in 1946.


All SBP and NSLP lunches must meet Federal requirements, through decisions about the specific foods to serve and the methods of preparation are made by our Food and Nutrition professionals. Information about the SBP and the NSLP nutrition standards may be found on the School Meals website:


PLEASE NOTE: We highly encourage you to monitor your child's lunch account free of charge on EZSchoolPay. You may also make payments on this website with a debit or credit card for a fee of $1.50 .
