UPDATE ABOUT GRAB-N-GO MEALS (posted March 27, 2020): Beginning March 30, free meal pick-ups will take place at EPHS from 9 to 11 a.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays only, with meals for multiple days available at one time. Pick-ups will no longer take place at John Mills. The sites are being consolidated and moving to Mondays and Wednesdays at EPHS to limit exposure and give families multiple days' worth of meals. On Mondays, you can pick up meals for Monday and Tuesday; on Wednesdays, meals for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be available. April grab-n-go menus will be posted on the Meal Menus page when they become available.
District 401 works with Aramark to provide food services to our students. Since 1998, the District has looked to Aramark to build a food service program that fosters parental, student, staff and community involvement.

During summer break, the May menus from the previous school year will remain posted until shortly before the start of the new school year in August.
Downloadable menus are also available at Aramark's SchoolDish website.
