Distance Learners Meal order form

Meals are provided to all students at no charge until the end of this school year. All students who return to in person classes will receive their regular school meals during each school day at their school.

*Ventura Unified School District is not responsible for food once it has left the district pick up site

*Check out what’s new: Salad bar Farms!  A fifth acre farm is currently under construction at Balboa Middle School.  The farm will produce lettuce and carrots for neighboring schools.  There will also be a learning garden area for the students!  Projects like this need a lot of support from our community.  If you are interested in helping make this a success, please contact Ashley Parrish-Decker in Food & Nutrition at 805-641-5000.
