What's For Lunch Today?

Lunch Account

Families may pay for school meals in one of three ways: by setting up an online payment account, submitting a check, or paying cash. Detailed information on payment methods is outlined below.

  • Online - MySchoolBucks is a user-friendly service that is free, convenient, private, and secure. Once the account is open, parents can check the fund account at any time. 
  • Check - Write a check made out to Oak View Food and Nutrition Services and bring the check to the food service manager’s office. A parent who wants his or her check payments to be for meals only (no à la carte items) should write instructions on the check. Please note that both a local address and phone number must be either printed or handwritten on the check. The student name and PIN number are required on the check memo line.
  • Cash - Cash may be brought to the food services manager’s office for deposit on the student’s account, or students may pay cash on a daily basis.

Free/Reduced Lunches

Free/Reduced Lunches are available for qualified families. Applications are available online or by contacting FCPS Food and Nutrition at 703-813-4800. You must apply each year to remain eligible.

The forms and information are completely confidential and will not be shared with teachers, and no other children will ever know. The children use PIN numbers to purchase their food, and only the food services manager knows how much each child pays for the meal.


At Oak View, cupcakes, candy, and/or any other edible food items for birthdays are not allowed. We have students who suffer from life-threatening allergies. As a school community, we must do all we can to minimize the chances of an allergic incident and must work diligently to keep our students safe.
