Bus delivery routes will begin Wednesday, December 2. Three delivery routes will visit sites on the South East, South West, and North East side of the city. More information. 


Please remember to wear a mask & practice social distancing when coming to pick up meals. 

You do not need to come to your regular school building to receive your meal. Instead, feel free to walk, drive, or bike to the closest school to your home.  Meals are available to any child under the age of 18. No ID is needed and students do not need to be present to receive meals. 


Options for breakfast and lunch

Each day, students will receive a bagged item that contains a complete breakfast and a complete lunch. You can choose from two options:
 - A heat-and-serve meal choice for breakfast and lunch (including reheating instructions provided in English and Spanish), OR
 - A cold meal choice for breakfast and lunch.

Safe, contact-free distribution

Anyone picking up meals must wear a mask at all times. Our staff will also be wearing masks and taking precautions to keep everyone safe during distribution.

You will pick up meals outside at each school building, usually at an exterior door. You will never need to enter a building to receive a meal. Security will be at each building to direct you to go to a specific door. 

While we know remote learning is far from ideal, we are working hard to make sure our students can still get the meals and other resources they need. We encourage all families to take part in these meal services, whether they would like them on a daily basis or only on select days. The service has been designed to be flexible to meet your needs!
