The Avon Grove Charter School is relaunching the Grab and Go Meal Program at The State Road Campus on Tuesday, September 8th. Please note this is a Tuesday pickup due to the Labor Day Holiday. A meal pickup will also take place on Thursday September 10th.

2020 Spring & Summer Grab & Go Success!
The Food Services Department has concluded their Spring & Summer Grab & Go Meal Program and is excited to share that over 14,000 meals were provided to our community during these months.
In addition, we were the recipients of a Nourishing Neighbors grant in the amount of $5,000. Nourishing Neighbors, an initiative of the Albertsons Companies Foundation, established this opportunity to help local families impacted by the current crisis. This grant money is specifically aimed at increasing participation in, and access to local meal programs.
Managing Your Lunch Account
AGCS offers schoolcafé, an online service for the convenience of replenishing lunch accounts with a debit or credit card. Please note that schoolcafé adds 5% to each online payment transaction. Visit schoolcafé to make an online deposit to your child's cafeteria account, check balances, review purchases, and to get low balance reminders. For information on using schoolcafé, please download the schoolcafé Instructions Flyer.
You are also welcome to send in a deposit for your student via check (made out to AGCS) with no additional charges. Please use the Cafeteria Account Deposit Slip and mark the envelope "Cafeteria Deposit," with your child's name and homeroom Teacher.
