... a gathering place to nourish the mind, body, heart & soul

Important Information
The cost of lunch for learners and adults is $4.00.  This includes a hot lunch or sandwich bar, and salad bar withice water.
The menu for the upcoming weeks can be found on the "menu" tab above.
We accept cash, debit and credit cards at the point of sale. You can use a checking or savings account (with a routing and account number) on myschoolaccount.com
Students are given a 4 or 5 digit pin to remember.  When it is their turn at a cashier, they punch it in and their account will be displayed; this will help our lines move faster.  We will help the little kiddos until they remember their numbers. 
 If your learner has food allergies, we need advance notice if they are purchasing lunch so we can prepare food that is safe for them to eat.  If they eat lunch every day, we will just make sure to have lunch ready for them at our Counter window.  If they order irregularly, please email us the day before so we have something ready for them.  If it is an emergency, email the café by 9am the day of, and we will make sure to have food for your learner on that day too.
If you are new to the school or have a incoming Kindergartener, email The Café at café@scvi-k12.org.  We can answer any questions you may have!
In order to keep our accounts current, learners will be allowed two lunches on credit or a maximum of $8.00 before they are not able to purchase on credit any longer.  In addition, a learner who does not have enough on their account will be given a lunch but will not be able to purchase any snacks (there is free fruit available for any learner in need of nutrition). If you want to put restrictions on your learner's account, please email café@scvi-k12.org.
Our "Counter" is the open window on the right side of The Cafe.  The Counter is open Monday through Thursday from 11-2 to both learners and adults to purchase gourmet food items. In order to expedite orders in a timely manner we ask our patrons to pre-order either the day before, in the morning before school begins or at a break before 10:00 a.m..  Please refer to our menu for the daily options. We offer terrific sandwiches, burgers, salads and more; we have been known to create special items upon request! Prices range from a smaller side for $6.00 and a larger portion for $8.00.  Come by for lunch.

The Café has a large selection of healthy snack items for purchase throughout the day. The menu for the snack selections can be found by the cashier's station or on our website under café then snack items; prices range from $.50- $2.50.
We need volunteers to work in the kitchen and supervise during breaks and lunch.  And you get an awesome celebration brunch cooked by our chefs at the end of the year for volunteering!!  Isn't that reason enough?? Please email cafe@scvi-k12.org to get signed up.

Online Accounts:

Set up an online account for your learner and yourself at myschoolaccount.com. Students can pay for their snacks, breakfast, and/or lunch with their online accounts.  The cashiers will accept cash, checks, or credit/debit cards daily (brought directly to the café or put in the lunch mailbox in the lobby), additionally,  myschoolaccount.com allows you to put money in your learner's account via your checking or savings account. The fee is $2 to put money in, and you can put in as much as you want. You may also set up the account to e-mail you a reminder when funds are low.  Please note: myschoolaccount.com can take up to 48 hours to reflect any funds added to a learners account; if you need the funds before they show up as a credit please give Chef Eileen Wright a call at the café.

Our computers do not sync until the evening.  Sometimes you may put money into your learner's account and we do not see the funds because of the sync happening after our lunch business.  If your student was told that they do not have any money in their account and you have put money in, we just can not see it yet.  We have not and will not turn down any learner if their account is negative from one or two lunches! 


An email is sent out weekly for accounts that are in the negative.  If you believe that this letter was sent in error, please email us.

E-mail juana.rodriguez@scvi-k12.org to find out your learner's ID number and PIN to set up the account online. Questions? E-mail cafe@scvi-k12.org.

Students Leaving SCVi

If your learner is leaving, you must pay your outstanding balance before the last day they attend SCVi.  If their account is in the positive, you have two weeks from their exit date to request a refund from their account.  Please note that there are no refunds for any learners who has been partaking in the "Lunch Plan".  Please email café@scvi-k12.org with your address, learners name and other pertinent info to request a refund.  After two weeks, the funds that are left in the account will go into another account to help pay for learners who can't afford lunch.


It is our goal to serve delicious, healthy and  diverse menu options.
