All VHCS students to receive daily breakfast and lunch at no cost through end of 2020

September 3, 2020 -- Dear VHCS family,

Beginning Tuesday, September 8, all students in Vestavia Hills City Schools will be able to eat both breakfast and lunch at school each day, at no cost to students. This applies to all VHCS students on all grade levels. Students enrolled in the Remote Learning Model will also receive their weekly meals at no cost beginning on September 8.

We are pleased to offer this service to all students through a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) coronavirus relief program which has been extended through the end of the year. Students will be eligible for meals at no cost each day through the end of December 2020, unless funding for the program is exhausted before that time.

Here are important details for you and your student:

  • All VHCS students will be eligible for (1) breakfast and (1) lunch at school each day.
  • Students in the Remote Learning Model will receive breakfasts and lunches for the full week during their weekly meal pickup times.
  • Students who purchase additional meals or "a la carte" items during the day will be charged for those items.

If you have any questions, please contact Director of Child Nutrition Amanda Carlson at

We look forward to offering this service to your student beginning next week.
