Meal Pick-up Guidelines

  • Drive into the loop in the school’s parking lot.
  • Tell the food service staff the number of children for the pick-up. 
  • Pop the trunk of your car while remaining inside. 
  • Our food service staff will place all meals in the trunk of the car to ensure we are limiting contact and practicing safe social distancing.

Reminders

  • All three locations will offer meals for all children of any grade level.
  • If you have multiple students in the district, you can pick up all meals in one location of your choosing.
  • Children who are 18 years of age and under can receive free meals. There are not financial requirements to be eligible for this program. 
  • All meals are free of charge and the program runs through the end of June.
  • Do not duplicate food pick-up at multiple locations. This duplication is not allowed under the food program.
