The QV Café strives each day to provide delicious, nutritious meals for our students. Breakfast and lunch is served daily. For the 2020-2021 school year, breakfast is $1.50, lunch is $3.05 per day, and a premium lunch (middle and high school) is $3.75 per day.


All Quaker Valley students will have the accessibility to order Breakfast and Lunch for every instructional day. Meals will be served in containers that are sealed with a lid. The meals provided will continue to follow all of the nutritional guidelines, including all five food groups (milk, fruits, vegetable, meat, carbohydrate). All utensils and additional condiments will be individually wrapped and disposable. Students will be required to be six feet apart at all times on the serving line. This will be enforced by floor and seating decals. Keypads will not be used. Students will tell the cashier their lunch account number.
