• We know the importance of providing healthy meals and the impact nutrition has on a student’s educational experience and their overall wellbeing. The Nutrition Services Departments (D65 & D202) are excited to announce that we are now able to offer meals free of charge, to all children ages 18 and under, no questions asked. This is made possible through a waiver sponsored by the USDA (effective through June 30, 2021). 

    Beginning Tuesday, September 8, meals will be available for pick-up at seven sites throughout the community. In order to plan accordingly, we do ask that you fill out the attached order form (Meal Order Form). This form can be completed just once; please answer the questions as accurately as possible. It is our goal to ensure that we have enough food for everyone that needs it and that we have no food waste. The order form may also be completed as meal service is needed and will be available online at district65.net

    Curbside meal pick-ups will take place at the following seven locations. You may pick up food for all of your children (including anyone under age 18) at one site. All pick-ups will occur on Mondays (unless it is a holiday). Seven days' worth of meals will be provided (7 breakfasts and 7 lunches with 1/2 gallons of milk). Please note the different pick-up times based on site.
