National School Breakfast and Lunch Program

Cesar Chavez PCS is proud to offer free breakfast and lunch to all of our students. We are also proud to offer free snack to our afterschool program for our middle school students. In the event of a school closure due to COVID, we will operate the Seamless Summer Option (SSO). We strive to serve quality food that exceeds the requirements of the Healthy Schools Act (2010).
