MEAL PACKS STILL AVAILABLE DURING 100% ONLINE LEARNING -

Please read careful as the days and times have changed during 100% online learning

While LVA is 100% online we will still make Meal Packs available for pick up on campus.

Starting Wednesday, December 2nd you may pick up a 5 day breakfast and lunch Meal Pack on Wednesday’s between 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM. You will pick up meals outside at the JR/SR HS parent pick up exterior door. Please follow the signs to the designated area. You will never need to enter a building to receive a meal.

Anyone picking up meals must wear a mask at all times. Our staff will also be wearing masks and taking precautions to keep everyone safe during distribution. No ID is needed and students do not need to be present to receive meals.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO PRE ORDER.


Many of your local home school districts may also be participating in this free meals program which means any LVA student under 18 may pick up meals at a more conveniently located school. Please check their websites for availability or call LVA’s School Nutrition Department at 610 866-9660 *4104
