D211 Summer School Meals, Seamless Summer Program Information
This summer the District 211 food service department will be serving both breakfast and lunch during summer school.
As in previous years, breakfast, lunch, and a la carte options are available to all students attending summer school. A complimentary breakfast will be available to all students daily. Additionally, Hoffman Estates and Palatine High Schools qualify for the USDA’s Seamless Summer meal program, which allows these schools to offer a free breakfast and lunch to all students attending both high schools’ summer school programs, as well as any child under the age of 18 in the community.
“Our summer feeding programs allow us an additional opportunity to provide our students and children in the community access to nutritious meals,” said Stacy Lenihan, director of Food Service at District 211.
Both schools will have summer breakfast and lunch hours for the community posted on their website during summer school, which operates May 31 through July 18. Meals will be available to all students in the cafeteria during the duration of summer school.
