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. While district-wide remote instruction is in place, all students will be able to pick-up free lunch meals on Mondays and Wednesdays at either Paramus High School (Gary Street cafeteria door) or West Brook Middle School (side cafeteria door) from noon to 1:00pm. For the time being, these will be the only lunch service sites for all district students. We will provide a sufficient number of lunch meals to cover the week including holidays and weekends.

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.

In recognition of Martin Luther King Day, the district is not open on Monday, January 18. In order to provide a lunch meal for this day, a seven-day distribution will take place tomorrow Wednesday, January 13. This distribution will cover meals from Wednesday, January 13 through Tuesday, January 19, and will only take place at the high school (Gary Street cafeteria door) from noon to 1:00 p.m.

The normal lunch meal distribution schedule will continue starting Wednesday, January 20.
