Food and Nutrition Services


All students, regardless of their family's income or school of attendance, have the option to eat school meals free of charge. This means families do not need to complete a meal application this year. 

For the 2021-22 school year, students have access to 17 nutritious meals per week -- breakfast, lunch and supper Monday-Friday, plus lunch for the two weekend days.

Lunch is served on-campus, while breakfast, supper and weekend meals are provided in take-home meal bags. Check out What's In My Take-Home Meal Bag?
*Some exceptions may apply in take-home meal bag items for schools offering nutrition break on-campus and for students participating in PrimeTime or 21st Century.

Students do not need to use PIN numbers to receive their meals. Each student may receive only one lunch and one take-home meal bag. All meals will be consumed outdoors.

Continuing with online learning?

Students enrolled in the district's Virtual Academy, or families with children 18 years and younger not in our school system, can pick up meals from our four curbside meal pick-up locations open Monday - Friday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
