Food Distribution Update: Free Meals Provided for Students

 

Beginning Monday, Sept. 14, the Issaquah School District will begin offering free lunches to all students 18 and under. Beginning the week of Sept. 28, the District will also begin providing breakfast and will add additional meal pickup days and locations.

During the weeks of Sept. 14 and 21:

As previously planned, on each of the next two Mondays, Sept. 14 and Sept. 21 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., students or parents may pick up student lunches for five days at these schools :

These lunches will now be provided at no cost to families.

Beginning Monday, September 28, the District will begin providing breakfast and lunch, will add one pickup day per week, and will add four more pickup sites. These meals will be provided at no cost to families.

When:

  • Mondays and Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Pick up breakfast and lunch for three days on Mondays and pick up breakfast and lunch for two days on Thursdays.
  • This schedule will continue until at least December, or until federal funding runs out.

Where:

Students may pick up a meal package for themselves, or parents/guardians may pick up for each student 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. Students 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.

Please help the district plan by signing up each week using this pre-order form. Walk-ups will also be accepted.
