    Welcome Back to the

    Food for Thought Lunch Program!
    The Past:
    The unanticipated closure in the spring put an abrupt halt to our usual program as the kitchen staff pivoted to offering ‘emergency’ sack lunches for all children.

    The Present: The meal service process will be different, but Chef Andy and the team are thrilled to present a familiar menu full of the offerings that we know and love.

    The Future: This is a HUGE undertaking and we look forward to enough participation so we can continue to offer nutritious, delicious, from-scratch meals throughout the duration of teleschooling.

    HELP SPREAD THE WORD!

    Moving Forward 

    Here is a glance at what service will look like. More information can be found in the links in the sidebar. 

    Choices/Menus: There are TWO options for lunch and each option also comes with breakfast. They will be bundled and picked up at the same time.

    Ordering: Online order forms for the week must be turned in by Sunday at 10pm to assist in planning and food preparation. If you missed the Sunday 10pm deadline and/or order mid-week, you may default to Option #2 due to limited supply. Weekly Orders are STRONGLY advised.

    Meal Prices: All meals are free to children between the ages of 1 - 18! There is currently no option for ordering meals for adults or guests, but we are working on it!

    Service Time and Distribution: Meals can be picked up between 7:00 am - 8:00 am at the high school parking lot. Meals must be taken and no food will be consumed on-site. Additional pickup sites and times are listed below and in the link on the sidebar.  

    Identification Verification: Parents can pick up meals on behalf of their children, but must be prepared to verify child's name and age. 

    Dietary Requests: Please work with the school nurse for any specific dietary restrictions.

    Food Safety: All menu items provided can be safely consumed within 2 hours, or they must be refrigerated. Food is cooked and can be eaten cold, or reheating instructions can be followed for increased enjoyment!  

    Staff & Student Safety: Staff and student health and safety are paramount and ALL CDC, local and state guidelines are followed with fidelity. 

    Disclaimer: Menu items may be altered or substituted without prior notification due to supply and demand nationwide.

    Service Days: Meals are available for every day that school is in session (including half days). Contact the 36 weekends program for food assistance on weekends, holidays, and breaks.
