Beginning July 6, the Champlain Valley School District (CVSD)  schools, in partnership with our local Food Shelves, began providing free breakfast and lunch for all children 18 years and younger for the summer. Lunches will continue to be prepared by our very own school lunch heroes and will meet all USDA requirements. Our chefs will be preparing the items your child already loves: mac and cheese, nachos, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, pizza, and even pulled pork sandwiches, along with a variety of sandwiches and salads.

We will be distributing meals on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with enough food to cover the entire week.

Charlotte Central School: 10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Shelburne Community School, Hinesburg Community School at CVU, and Williston Central School 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Please let us know how many meals to prepare by filling out the short form from this link. You can also find this information on the CVSD website. Click on the Foodservice link. If the link to the form you need is not active, please be patient. It will be by the end of the day.

CVSD is currently looking for volunteers to help with food distribution at the pickup sites and to deliver food to families who are unable to access for health, transportation, or scheduling reasons. If you or your organization is interested in helping, please send us an email.
