Meals for the 2020-21 School Year

The USDA is allowing for free school breakfasts and lunches, for all students 18 and younger, through June 30, 2021 as a result of the global pandemic.

To accommodate for the new free meal initiative, 4 different student schedule types (e.g., RLA, full time in school, cohort A and cohort B) and having to package/label individual meals, please note the following:

  • No application is needed to receive free meals. To receive other benefits associated with free/reduced price meals, please see the “Free and Reduced Price Meal Program” section below.
  • To order meals for your students for days when they are physically in school, you must register and order via the LINQ system.
  • Hybrid or fully-in-school students can pick up meals for days when they are not in school “on their way home” or through designed remote sites on Wednesdays or Fridays.
  • Remote students can pick up 7 days’ worth of meals on either Wednesdays or Fridays.

Please click on the appropriate link below to get additional details on how to get meals for your student(s).

Hybrid and fully-in-person students can either pick up meals to be eaten on remote days on their way home from school (see details for your specific scenario above) or once a week on either Wednesdays or Fridays from any of the locations below.
