Food Service options
School meals are vital to the nutrition of many students. We are committed to ensuring all students have the ability to access school meals during the school closure by offering meals through delivery to sites around the school district.
To-Go Breakfast and Lunch
As part of the school shut-down, "to-go" breakfast, lunch, and snack for students and children ages 18 and under, will be available at delivery sites within our school district boundaries at no charge for all students.
These sites will have food available for pick-up between 9:30 am and 11:00 am.
