Food and Nutrition Program

Lunch Account

Families may pay for school meals in one of three ways: by setting up an online payment account, via check or by paying cash. Detailed information on payment methods is outlined below.

  • Online - MySchoolBucks is a user-friendly service that is free, convenient, private and secure. Once the account is open, parents can check the fund account at anytime. 
  • Check - Write a check made out to Churchill Road Food and Nutrition Services and bring the check to the food service manager’s office. CRS’s food services manager is Mr. Yan Cheung. A parent who wants his or her check payments to be for meals only (no à la carte items) should write instructions on the check or tell Mr. Cheung. Please note: a local address and phone number are required to be either printed or handwritten on the check. The student name and PIN number are required on the check memo line.
  • Cash - Cash may be brought to the food services manager’s office for deposit on student’s account, or students may pay cash on a daily basis.

Free/Reduced Lunches

Free/Reduced Lunches are available for qualified families. Applications are available online or by contacting FCPS Food and Nutrition at 703-813-4800. You must apply each year to remain eligible.

The forms and information are completely confidential and will not be shared with teachers or administrators, and no other children will ever know. The children use PIN numbers to purchase their food, and only the food services manager knows how much each child pays for the meal.

Join Your Child for Lunch 

Parents are welcome to join their child for lunch from time to time. No advanced notice is needed; just check in at the office and meet your child’s class in the lobby.

Class Parties & Birthdays

Room parents and the classroom teacher make the arrangements for class parties, which are limited to two per year. For birthday treats, please notify the teacher in advance and bring non-food options only.

Party invitations may not be distributed at school.
