• STUDENT MEALS DURING hybrid LEARNING

The more you eat, the more you help!
The more meals students eat from school, the more federal funds schools receive! Don't be shy - give school meals a try!
  • District 65’s Nutrition Services department offers appealing and nutritious meals to promote the growth and development of every student. All schools offer freshly prepared, balanced lunches daily and, new this school year, breakfast will be available for students at every school. Meals will be available to all students regardless of remote or in-person learning pathway.

    Meals will be available to pre-order for remote learners. Curbside pick up will be available every Monday (or Tuesday if Monday is a holiday) from 10am-1pm at the locations listed below. Families will have the ability to pre-order breakfasts, lunches, or both, and will receive enough for the week. In addition, a late meal pick-up option will be available at King Arts and Chute from 3pm-6pm. Students or their parents/caregivers may pick up meals from any of the locations.

     

    Curbside Pick-up MENUS, ORDER FORMS, AND APPLICATIONS 

    Families are encouraged to view the week's meal options available through the breakfast and lunch menus provided by the Nutrition Services department. Heating and storage instructions for to-go menus can be viewed in English or Spanish.  Please note, for those students who will continue to engage in a remote learning pathway that curbside pick-up services will remain in effect for the remainder of the school year. 

    To ensure that your meal order is processed correctly and to place your order prior to pick-up at one of the preferred locations below, please complete the Order Form for curbside pickup by Friday at 9 AM. The Order Form may be completed as needed by new participants. If you have already completed the form, there is no need to fill it out again. 

    As a reminder, if you haven’t completed your Free and Reduced Meal Application, please do so at your earliest convenience. All families are encouraged to apply, even if they feel that they may not qualify. Families should complete meal applications regardless of updated costs as the status of the application has benefits beyond the meal program, such as free or reduced school fees.
