The QV Café strives each day to provide delicious, nutritious meals for our students. Breakfast and lunch is served daily. For the 2021-2022 school year, breakfast and lunch meals are FREE.  

 
*Please Note: Due to national and regional supply shortages the menu will often be subject to change.*


All Quaker Valley students will have the accessibility to order Breakfast and Lunch for every instructional day.  The meals provided will continue to follow all of the nutritional guidelines, including all five food groups (milk, fruits, vegetable, meat, carbohydrate).  
 
At the elementary schools, there is a lunch choice of five meals each day, the advertised meal, as well as "Daily Alternate" meals.
At the middle and high schools, in addition to the advertised lunch, there is a variety of a la carte items from which to choose as well as the Lunch Box Deli, Made to Order Salad, Homemade Pizza, Grab and Go, and chicken sandwiches. Please visit "menus" on the right.

Federal nutrition standards govern our school meals as follows:

Age-­appropriate calorie limits
Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (Students must take at least 1⁄2 cup of fruits or vegetables to count toward the meal price)
A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green, red/orange, and legumes
Fat‐free or 1% milk (Flavored milk must be fat-free)
More whole grains
Less sodium
