Students can receive free meals while in school. For remote learning days, TO GO meals can be taken home from school or picked up through Avon Grove TO GO, our meal pick-up program. To maintain the integrity of the program, only one option is available to each student, each day. Limited a la carte items will be available for purchase but students must have funds in their meal account.

Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) Supplemental Payments
Under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCR)(P.L. 116-127) the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) approved the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) to provide households with children eligible for free and reduced-priced meals under the National School Lunch Program (NLSP) or the School Breakfast Program (SBP) with P-EBT benefits due to the COVID-19 outbreak and related school closures. DHS will work with the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) to identify eligible children and issue P-EBT. More information can be found here. And FAQ can be found here.
Congratulations Class of 2020!
If there is a positive balance on your meal account, you may request a refund, transfer the balance to a sibling or donate the balance to benefit another student. Please refer to the refund request form for more information.
Make Good Nutrition a Lifelong Mission
The Avon Grove School District Food Service Department will provide all students with the fuel their minds and bodies need in order to learn, by preparing and serving nutritious meals in accordance with the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs.
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) evolved from efforts to assist children in low-income households and was established under the National School Lunch Act signed by President Harry Truman in 1946. The program is monitored by the United States Department of Agriculture and the Pennsylvania Department of Education and all menus must meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
The NSLP is designed to provide students with approximately one-third of the Recommended Dietary Allowances. Menus are planned to limit calories from fat to less than 30% and less than 10% calories from saturated fat. A variety of grains, vegetables and fruits are available daily.
All school cafeterias participating in the National School Lunch Program are meeting tough new federal nutrition standards for school meals. This change is due to the passage of the 2010 Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act passed by U.S. Congress.
