D211 Post: District 211 Summer Food Service Program returns

            As summer and summer school begin for students in the area, Palatine High School (1111 N. Rohlwing Rd.) and Schaumburg High School (1100 W. Schaumburg Rd.) will be participating in the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program that offers free breakfast and lunch to all children under the age of 18.  This marks the 4th year High School District 211 will participate in a USDA summer meal program, offering a free breakfast and lunch to not only students participating in summer programs, but any child under the age of 18 within the community.

            The Summer Food Service Program will operate at both schools from June 4 through July 18, with hours posted on each of the school websites.  Additionally, District 211 Food Services will be serving lunch at the Hoffman Estates Branch Library (1550 Hassel Rd. in Hoffman Estates) Wednesdays and Thursdays from June 12 through July 18, with the exception of July 4.  Hoffman Estates High School will not be serving meals this summer due to the building being closed for renovations.

            “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, District 211 Director of Food Service.  “And, this summer, we’re very excited about offering meals at a new location in Hoffman Estates to make things more convenient for children in our community.”

            Although the Summer Food Service Program is not available at William Fremd and James B. Conant High Schools, students will have the opportunity to receive a free breakfast before the start of school and will have access to lunch options at regular rates.

            Last summer, more than 50,000 summer meals were served in District 211.  In addition to breakfast and lunch options, à la carte options and items in vending machines will be available for purchase.  For more information about the Summer Food Service Program, please visit https://adc.d211.org/page/7125.  Questions should be directed to the District 211 Food Service Department at 847-755-6680, or email foodservice@d211.org.
