D211 Post: Summer School Meals Resume at District 211 Schools


          With the start of summer school earlier this week, the food service department at Palatine, Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, and Fremd High Schools.  Additionally, Palatine, Schaumburg and Hoffman Estates will be participating in the USDA’s Seamless Summer Program, which offers free breakfast and lunch to all children under the age of 18, for the 3rd consecutive year.  The program offers a free breakfast and lunch to all students in those schools during the school day.

            “This program allows the department to continue providing nutritious meals to children in the community throughout the summer months,” said District 211 Director of Food Services Stacy Lenihan.

            Schaumburg will serve breakfast from 6:45 a.m. until 7:15 a.m., while Hoffman Estates and Palatine will serve breakfast from 7:30 a.m. through 8:00 a.m. All three schools will serve lunch beginning at 10:00 a.m.  Hoffman Estates will end lunch at 11:10 a.m., Schaumburg at 11:20 a.m., and Palatine at 12:30 p.m. 

            Though Fremd will not be participating in the Seamless Summer program, the school will offer a free breakfast and purchasable lunch to all students attending summer school classes.

            In the past, more than 50,000 meals have been served through the District’s involvement in the program.  The free lunches include an entrée item, one cup of fruit, one cup of vegetables, and a low-fat milk.

            Conant High School will not offer meals due to the school being closed for summer renovations.
