plate showing food groups
  • Effective Tuesday, September 8, the Woodridge 68 food service program during remote learning was updated and expanded. The USDA recently extended its national school lunch and breakfast program guidelines through December 31, 2020, allowing school districts to distribute meals as they did this spring and summer. Please note changes have also been made to the distribution locations and times.

  • Who is Eligible

    All school-aged children 18 years old and younger are eligible for the meal program.

     

    Nutritional Information & Menus

    Meals will include a boxed breakfast and boxed lunch, including milk, that meets all nutritional requirements of the USDA National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. Menus and nutritional information are posted in the Food Services section of the district website.

     

    No ID or Payment Needed

    Families will only need to indicate how many children are in the household when picking up meals; no student names or ID numbers will be collected. There is no charge for these meals, regardless of pay status (free, reduced, or paid).

     

    Meal Pickup

    Families may pick up meals curbside twice per week. Three days of meals will be distributed per student these days, providing up to six meals a week.

    • Tuesday/Thursday distribution will be at five schools between 7:00-9:00am.
    • Wednesday/Friday distribution will be at various remote sites from 11:30-11:55am or 12:05-12:30pm.

    Woodridge 68 reserves the right to change, move or cancel serving locations and times based on participation and staffing at each site.
