Child Nutrition Services

Buckingham County Public Schools' Child Nutrition Services is operated under the federally funded School Nutrition Program. Nutrition is an essential part of the education process. Studies show that well-nourished students are better prepared to learn. The School Nutrition Program strives to provide nutritious meals to our students, and we are committed to making nutritious meals available to every child in Buckingham County Public Schools. We work to ensure that our students receive courteous service and attractive, well-balanced meals every day.



All Buckingham County Schools


Buckingham County Public Schools implemented the option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) in the 2021-22 School Year. This CEP will last 4 years. As a result, all enrolled students of Buckingham County Public Schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2022-2023 school year.



What does this mean for you and your children?

Great news for you and your students! All enrolled students of Buckingham County Schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2022-2023 school year. No further action is required of you. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application.


Partnership with My School Bucks

Your student will still have the opportunity to purchase “ala carte items” and “extras" if he/she desires. Your My School Bucks account can be used for this purpose. The BCPS Nutrition Services Program has partnered with MySchoolBucks.com to allow parents to check balances and add money directly to their student's snack account. To use this service, parents must register online at MySchoolBucks.com.

We look forward to working with your students. If you have questions or need information, please contact us at 434-969-4455.
