The U.S. Department of Agriculture has extended the free meal program through the end of the 2020-21 school year. This allows us to serve free, nutritious meals to all children 18 and younger, regardless of income or enrollment in the Issaquah School District. 

Children or their parents/guardians may pick up meals at these times and locations:

When:

  • Mondays and Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Where:

Meal pickup is available at these schools:

Children 18 or younger may pick up a meal package for themselves, or parents/guardians may pick up for each child in their household.

Food service staff at all locations follow all CDC and Health Department recommendations for safety, including social distancing and wearing face coverings.

Each component of the meals will be packaged separately to maintain food quality. For example, the bread, meat, cheese and condiments of a sandwich will be packaged separately and need to be assembled at home. Children will be able to select between meat or meatless entrées. Refrigeration of some items will be required and some minimal cooking may be required. Cooking instructions will be provided as needed.
