Please note we are changing the way the Free Meal Forms and information will be shared going forward. Sign-up forms will now be available on our website under “Departments” – “Nutrition Services” – “20-21 Free Meal Form.” We will no longer be emailing a forms. Forms will still need to be submitted every week if you are participating. The form for the current week will be available on Thursdays. Sign-up deadlines are Sundays at midnight.


TO-GO MEALS ARE FOR ONLINE STUDENTS AND PRESCHOOLERS ONLY. If your student is attending school in person you do not need to fill out the form. They receive their free meals at school. Forms are available every Thursday and the deadline is Sunday at midnight. Forms submitted after midnight on Sunday will not be accepted. If you have multiple children, please submit a form for each child. Please only submit once per student. Please click here to fill out the form to request free meals.
