School Nutrition Services

CCPS School Nutrition Services

Employees of the Food Service Department are dedicated to providing nutritious meals at a reasonable cost to students of Culpeper County Public Schools. We believe that well-nourished children find the road to success easier to travel.

All of our schools participate in the National School Lunch Program, which mandates nutritional requirements, including the percentage of calories from fat and amount of saturated fats.

The Food Service Department serves about 1,068,000 meals (breakfast and lunch) annually. Believe it or not, in one school year, Culpeper’s students consumed: 27,000 servings of green beans, 17,300 servings of grapes and 762,592 cartons of milk.

Food sales – both meals and ala carte items -- sustain the food service portion of the school budget. Our cafeterias remain budget neutral in a time when many food service departments look to the overall school budget for financial support. Our staff continually searches for food products that are not only wholesome but economical -- and just plain tasty.

School Cafeteria Prices for 2024-2025:


  • K-12th grade - FREE

  • Adult- $2.75


  • K-12th grade- FREE

 A la carte menu prices vary according to selection.

Parents who would like to make requests or ask questions concerning their child’s food choices may contact the cafeteria manager at the school. Each school uses a computer system that can note food allergies and track or block a student’s food selections.
