USDA Extends Free Meals for Children through end of VCS School Year on June 8, 2021

Update: 5/20/21

The curbside meal service has been extended through June 8, 2021.


Update: 3/18/21

There will be no curbside meal service on March 23 due to schools being closed for Spring Break. The curbside meal service will resume March 30 at 6:30 a.m.


DELAND – Volusia officials have been granted permission from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Food and Wellness Division, to continue the meal program that allows all children under 18 in schools and the community to eat for free until June 8, 2021, the last day of school.

All students attending in-person classes in Volusia County Schools will continue to receive their breakfast and lunch meals at no charge.

For children not attending in-person classes, families may register weekly for the free curbside meal service. Families pick up those meals each Tuesday from 6:30-7 a.m., with the last pickup day scheduled for June 8.

Meals provided through the curbside service are free and are bundled with five breakfasts and five lunches. Registration is required and must be completed weekly between Tuesday morning and Thursday night for the following Tuesday’s pickup. Please visit here "Registration Link" to register for meals. Parents can register to pick up meals at any participating curbside school, regardless of which school their children attend.

Parents must show their ID when picking up meals, as well as a form of ID for each student requesting meals. Current student ID cards or birth certificates are accepted.

Now through the end of the school year, the pickup sites for the weekly curbside meal service will be at these sites:

  • Campbell Middle
  • Chisholm Elementary
  • Citrus Grove Elementary
  • Coronado Beach Elementary
  • Cypress Creek Elementary
  • DeBary Elementary
  • DeLand Middle
  • Discovery Elementary
  • Galaxy Middle
  • Heritage Middle
  • David C. Hinson Sr. Middle

  • Ormond Beach Middle
  • Osteen Elementary
  • Pathways Elementary
  • Pierson Elementary
  • River Springs Middle
  • Seabreeze High
  • Silver Sands Middle
  • Sugar Mill Elementary

All parents, regardless of where their children attend school, are asked to apply for free or reduced meal benefits for this school year. VCS relies on these applications to fund additional programs and services for all students. The meal benefits application is quick and easy to complete online.
