This USDA waiver facilitates the safe provision of meals by eliminating the need to collect meal payments, thereby reducing contact and potential exposure.

Students who are homeschooled or are learning distantly can pick up free meals at the middle school. To-go meals are handed out 9:30-10:30 a.m. on school days in the food service parking lot on the north side of the middle school. This is the corner of 225th Street and Tower Road.

This distribution point may change depending on the demand. Parents can pick up meals without their children present. However, pickups for anyone but the immediate family isn’t allowed. Neighbor pickup isn’t allowed, the Facebook post said.
