Breakfast & Lunch for In-Person Learners


Beginning April 6, 2021, District 401 students who attend in-person instruction will receive a free lunch at school daily. This lunch will be for eating on site.

In-person learners will also receive free weekly breakfast/lunch bags to be taken home. Breakfast will not be eaten at school. The weekly take-home bags will contain seven breakfasts for the week ahead as well as free lunches for the weekend.


Distribution Schedule for Take-Home Bags


Depending on the school they attend, students who are in-person learners will receive their take-home bags on Thursdays or Fridays.

  • THURSDAY DISTRIBUTION — MIDDLE SCHOOL & HIGH SCHOOL
    Each Thursday, Elm and EPHS students will receive bags containing seven breakfasts to cover the next week and two lunches to cover the weekend.
  • FRIDAY DISTRIBUTION — ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 
    Each Friday, John Mills and Elmwood students will receive bags containing seven breakfasts to cover the next week and two lunches to cover the weekend.

All meals are free of charge through summer 2021. No registration is required.


Quality and Safety


While our service model has changed this year to abide by COVID-19 safety precautions, we are still here to provide quality meals to our students and community.

All food items will be pre-wrapped for safety and convenience of service. There will be no open cold bars, hot food handling or a la carte.

All meals are prepped in a socially-distanced environment by our staff wearing masks, while we practice enhanced cleaning and sanitation, temperature checks and hand-washing.
