Meal Pack Info for Hybrid & Online Learners

LVA MEAL PACKS

Lehigh Valley Academy has been awarded a grant to provide a FREE breakfast & lunch to students K-12, regardless of their current eligibility. This program applies to lunches served in school as well as the Meal Pack Pick Up program.
This program expires December 31, 2020. Paid, free and reduced eligibility will resume January 1, 2021.
We encourage everyone to take advantage of this free program.
Please visit Meal Pack Info for Hybrid & Online Learners for information on how to pick up the meal packs.
Meals no longer need to be ordered in advance. Please access www.schoolcafe.com to set up and manage your student(s) meal account.


Starting on Friday, September 18, 2020, LVA will begin offering
3 day (Hybrid only) and 5 day (100% online) Meal Packs for students enrolled in Lehigh Valley Academy (LVA).  These packs will contain both a breakfast and lunch component for each day that the students are not in school and are learning virtually online. 


Meal Pack Distribution

Meal Packs will be distributed on Tuesdays and Fridays between 3:45-4:30PM in the High School (HS) parent drop off area at 1650 Valley Center Parkway. 


Meals will not be distributed on days that school is closed for in-service or holidays. 


Meal Pack Menu

The Meal Packs do not necessarily include the same items as the in-school menu. View Meal Pack menus and order online below.


Ordering Meal Packs

Orders must be placed one week in advance. That means for meal pick-up on Tuesdays you must order by the previous Tuesday and for meal pick-up on  Fridays you must order by the Friday before.

Although you will no longer need to pre order your Meal Packs we would like you to still fill out the meal pack order form for October, this will allow us to ensure there will be enough meal packs available when you pick up.

Cost

Families that qualify for free or reduced priced meals will receive breakfast and lunch meals at the free or reduced rate. For information on how to apply for free and reduced priced meals, please see the information on the main Nutrition Program page.


Meals will be charged to each participating student’s School Cafe account. You must have registered for a School Cafe account before picking up meals. Charging to sibling accounts is not permitted. Cash will not be accepted at meal distribution. 


Student accounts will be charged as follows: 

Students who qualify for free meals will not be charged. 

Students that qualify for reduced priced meals will be charged $0.30 per breakfast and $0.40 per lunch.  

All others will be charged at:

K-12 Breakfasts - $2.00 each

K-8 Lunch - $3.25 each

9-12 Lunch - $3.50 each


Since the Meal Packs include both breakfast and lunch components, one breakfast and one lunch meal will be charged to each student’s account for each day included in the pack. 


You may also pick up a lunch/breakfast from any LVA school building between 11:00AM and 12 NOON daily. For more information or questions please contact L.Berndt@lvacademy.org.
