School Food Service will continue to distribute free meals during the summer, beginning on Tuesday, June 22 at select locations. More distribution locations will be added on Monday, June 28.

There is no food distribution during the week of June 14, and food will not be distributed from August 1-9. Regular meal service for students at school will begin again with the start of the 2021-2022 school year on August 10.

All sites with summer school or summer programs will be open for children (or parents/guardians of the children), 18 years of age and younger to receive a breakfast and/or lunch for free each day.

Distribution times and meals depend on the location, go to for a complete list of dates, times, locations, and meals provided. Please note that schools listed with the same time of distribution for breakfast and lunch will be providing both meals at that time.

A child does not have to be present to pick up meals. However, one of the following forms of identification is required to receive meals at the food distribution sites: Student ID Badge, Student Barcode Letter (that can be found in the child’s student portal), Passport, Birth Certificate, or Library Card.

The adult picking up the meals can also bring a picture that has themselves and the children for whom they are picking up food, in the photo. For the safety of the staff, facial covering or mask is required when picking up meals at any school food distribution site.

Meals may contain allergens. Adults picking up the food are asked to be vigilant and ensure they do not take food if allergies may be a concern. Food should be refrigerated or discarded if not consumed upon receipt.
