SPRING 2021 MEALS FOR IN-PERSON LEARNERS: See this page for information about breakfast and lunch for in-person learners from April 6 to June 9, 2021. Students who attend in-person learning will receive a free lunch at school daily. They will also receive free weekly meal bags to be taken home. The take-home bags will contain seven breakfasts for the week ahead as well as free lunches for the weekend.
CURBSIDE SCHEDULE: Beginning April 12, curbside pick-ups will no longer take place at Elmwood Park High School. Instead, they will be held every Monday from 8:45 to 9:45 a.m. at both elementary schools, John Mills and Elmwood.
ONLINE SURVEY: Please take our curbside meal survey so we can better meet the needs of District 401 families during the time of COVID-19. Thank you for your responses!
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.
Menus are also available at Aramark's SchoolDish website.
As D401's food service provider, Aramark has been entrusted to create high quality and nutritious meals, meet all applicable health department compliance standards, and provide expert leadership to build and sustain a viable food service program.

Other responsibilities entrusted to Aramark include:
- Staying current with the appropriate food standard operating procedures
- Taking advantage of new technologies for enhanced service and savings
