Lunch Meal Distribution for School Year 2020–2021

No cost lunch meals will be available to all district students under a temporary waiver offered by the USDA’s Child Nutrition program. The distribution will continue to take place on Gary Street behind the high school. For the time being, this will be the only lunch service site for all district students. We will provide a sufficient number of lunch meals to cover the week including holidays and weekends. We will distribute lunch meals on Mondays and Wednesdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. at the high school.

Each meal will contain a serving of fruit, vegetable, an entrée (protein/grain), and milk. The lunch is packed with nutrition and is convenient and free to all children under 18. Since this program is temporary, we encourage families to complete the application for free and reduced-price meals so they are prepared when this program ends.

  • The first day of school - Pick up two lunch meals on Thursday, September 3.
  • Week of September 7 - Pick up one lunch meal on September 8 and three lunch meals on September 9.
  • Starting on Monday, September 14, we will distribute lunch meals on Mondays and Wednesdays.
