Fall 2020 Meal Distribution

Food and Nutrition Services is excited to announce that USDA has extended a waiver that allows our District to offer meals at NO CHARGE for all students through December. Meals can be picked up from 11:30 am-1:00 pm at one of the ten school sites: Atlas, Montalvo, Portola, Balboa, Anacapa, Will Rogers, Ventura High, Sheridan Way, EP Foster, or Sunset. Drive-through or walk-up service is available at all sites.  

We encourage you to still apply for free and reduced-price meals as this extension of free meals may end in December. Applications are available online at https://venturausd.vcoe.org/fsonline/, or paper applications are available at the school sites. 

Meals are offered Mondays unless it falls on a District non-student contact day or holiday. 

Ventura Unified School District is not responsible for food once it has left the district pick up site.  Please be sure to immediately store food properly after pick up. 

Meal Distribution Beginning Nov. 30

We will continue to offer meals at NO CHARGE for all children ages 18 and under for the entire school year.

  • STUDENTS IN THE HYBRID MODEL

Sack breakfast and sack lunch will be offered at  the elementary school sites. Sack breakfast may be eaten during recess. (shelf-stable) Sack lunch must be taken home for immediate consumption. Three-day meal packs for distance learning days will be available to pick up on Wednesdays only at your school site from 11:30 am-1pm.

  • STUDENTS IN THE 100% DISTANCE LEARNING MODEL OR THOSE IN QUARANTINE

Monday meal pick up will be changed to Wednesdays beginning December 2 from 11:30am to 1:00pm at any of the 17 elementary sites. Drive-through or walk-up service is available at all 17 sites.  The former pick up locations at the middle and high schools will be closed until further notice.

Federal Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) Program

The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) and the California Department of Education (CDE), in a joint effort, are administering the federal Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program. As of July 27, the CDSS has issued P-EBT cards to over 3.5 million children throughout the state, providing over $1.3 billion to eligible families.

Those households with a pending application who provided an email address to the CDSS have received a communication informing them that the CDE and CDSS has been unable to determine their P-EBT eligibility. If a household believes that this determination was made in error, they can appeal the decision and provide additional information to determine their P-EBT eligibility.

Families that wish to request an appeal may do so by submitting a P-EBT Appeal Form online. Appeals must be submitted by Monday, August 10. The CDSS will begin processing appeals on August 11. A final communication will be sent to all households that submit an appeal request informing them if they were determined eligible for P-EBT benefits.

Contact Information

For more information about P-EBT, you may visit the CDSS P-EBT web page at https://www.cdss.ca.gov/home/pandemic-ebt.

Families that require assistance with their P-EBT card can call the P-EBT Customer Service Center at 877-328-9677.
