What is a Weekend Bag?
Under USDA waiver requirements, we are allowed to serve meals to students 7 days/week.  This is an opportunity to receive additional food on Fridays for the weekend.  

Is it free?
Yes!  This program is FREE for for all eligible children, regardless of Free/Reduced/Paid status. 

What do the meals consist of?
Each student will receive a full grocery bag of shelf-stable and cold foods that represent breakfast and lunches for days student was not able to eat at school. Starting in January 2021, we will have both familiar and expanded entree choices, in addition to the fresh fruits and vegetables and milk.  We plan to adjust the menu each week to increase variety for our students.  Menus posted on our website HERE.

Does my student have to be present?
No, students do not have to be present.  Families can also make arrangements for someone else to pick up their meal bags if they choose. 

How does the drive-through traffic flow work when I come for pickup?
