2020-21 Meal Prices and Curbside Meal Service

NEVADA, Texas - Community ISD's Child Nutrition Department will be back under the National School Lunch Program and National School Breakfast Program for the 2020-21 school year.

In accordance with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) requirements, each school district in the United States is mandated to evaluate meal prices each year. Paid student meal prices are to be set so that the price covers the difference in the paid and free student federal reimbursement rate. This is to ensure that the federal reimbursement payments do not supplant the paid student meal prices. If the paid rate is inadequate, then prices must be increased by at least 10 cents until the target price is reached. In compliance with the USDA's requirements, Community ISD must increase paid meal prices by 10 cents from 2019-20 to reach the target price for the 2020-21 school year.

Meal prices for the 2020-21 school year are as follows:

Reduced Breakfast $.30
Reduced Lunch $.40
Regular Breakfast $1.70
Regular Lunch $2.85

Reduced Breakfast $.30
Reduced Lunch $.40
Regular Breakfast $1.70
Regular Lunch $3.05

On-Campus Learning

Community ISD students who will be on campus will come down to their respective campus's cafeteria to eat. More meal periods have been added to accomodate CDC social distancing guidelines.

BravesID (Distance Learning)

Community ISD students who will be learning via BravesID (distance learning) will be offered curbside breakfast and lunch meals from 12:30 pm to 1 pm every Monday through Friday at the campuses of NeSmith Elementary School and Community High School. The NeSmith bus loop will serve as that campus's curbside pickup area, and CHS will have its curbside service pickup at the competition gym entrance on the north side of the building. Students may go to either campus to pick up their meals.

Students learning via BravesID do not need to be present for their meal to be picked up, but one of the following forms of identification must be presented at the time of meal pick up:

  • Student ID Number and Name
  • Student ID card
  • Report Card
  • Any other form of school correspondence

This is a requirement of the USDA and allows the meal to be charged to the appropriate student account at their meal eligiblity status. Community ISD will be distributing student IDs for elementary students that have built-in bar codes.
