School Menus & Meal Pricing

School Year 2021-2022

Thank you for participating in the Food & Nutrition program at Vernon Public Schools! We are happy to announce breakfast & lunch at no charge for all kids through June 17, 2022. Free meals are available for all students in school every day. No paperwork or ID required.

Breakfast & lunch are part of the regularly scheduled school day. Students can pick up a breakfast in the cafeteria when they arrive in the morning. Even if the student arrives late, breakfast is still available! In the case of a late arrival, student or parent/guardian should specify with the main office that a breakfast is needed.
