School Lunch Program

What is available?

The Learning Choice Academy participates in the National School lunch program by offering nutritious meals every school day. Meals are available at our Chula Vista, La Mesa, and Scripps Ranch locations. Due to the pandemic, school lunches will be provided free of charge for the 2021-2022 school year. Meals, food, and beverages served at school meet state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines.

Lunch Service During COVID:

The Learning Choice Academy has been approved for the Seamless Summer Option (SSO). This means that TLC will be providing free lunches to all TLC students regardless of whether their lunch designation is free, reduced, or paid on scheduled days.

Lunch service is provided at all three TLC school sites and available through drive-through pick-up from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays (revised 8/31). Please follow the directional signs posted or route, bring a student ID (if available), wear a mask, and stay in your car for pick-up.


All stakeholders are able to participate in the development, review, update, and implementation of the Local School Wellness Policy. Please contact Jeff Fechner ( for more details.
