School Meals Available FREE of Charge (Update September 3, 2020)

Dear District 214 Family, 

We know the importance of providing healthy meals and the impact nutrition has on a student’s educational experience and their overall wellbeing. The D214 Food and Nutrition Services Department is pleased to announce that we are now able to offer meals free of charge, to all children ages 18 and under. This is made possible through a waiver sponsored by the USDA (effective through December, 2020).

What this means for you:

Meal bags will be available for drive thru pick-up for any children in need, every Wednesday, from 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. at all schools, Rain or Shine.  Meal bags consist of seven complete breakfasts and seven complete lunches containing proteins, whole grains, fruit, vegetables, and milk

Your bag may contain a mixture of refrigerated and frozen meals. Please store items in a refrigerator/freezer within one hour of pick-up. Instructions for storing and cooking meals are available on the Food and Nutrition Services page of the District 214 website at:

Children do not need to be present at the time of pick-up. You can pick up a meal bag at any District school and do not need an ID for pick-up. You may pick up food for all of your children (including anyone under age 18) at one site.
