Hello families! The Child Nutrition staff is happy to announce that we are GOING GREEN! Starting in January we will no longer have paper menus, but will have menu access ONLINE! The fastest and easiest way to receive the menu electronically is to sign-up for our automated email at – click on lunch menus, menus, and then GOING GREEN MENUS and you can enter your information for a menu to be sent to you every month! Also on the menu page, are links to all of our Elementary, Middle and High school menus. You may also download the ‘Web Menus’ app from your smart phone’s play-store and find our menu under Vacaville Unified School District. For questions or concerns please feel free to contact Corina Boylen in Child Nutrition at 707-453-6157 or

My School Bucks

My School Bucks is the way to pay online for your student's lunch. You can also pay the cafeteria manager in person. Please note: If you are going to pay using my School Bucks, you need to allow 24 hours for the system to apply it to the account. Your student's account will follow them to each progressive school they attend in Vacaville Unified. For example, Cooper to Vaca Pena to Will C Wood. Also, My School Bucks will notify when your account balance is below $10.00. It's a great system! Call the office at 453-6210 to get your student's permanent id. number, you will need it to sign up for our school lunch program's automatic payment system: Click for MySchoolBucks
