D211 Post: National School Lunch Week (Slideshow)

October 12-16, is National School Lunch Week.  Throughout District 211 members of our food service department have continued to work to ensure that, even during remote learning, out students have access to stable meals.   To date, District 211 has provided more than 1 million meals since the initial move to remote learning, and our food service staff continue to pack more meal bags every day while still providing normal meal service for teachers and staff members working in the schools.

D211 Post: Food Service and Transportation to Pair Up for Meal Delivery

Staff members load meal bags into the back of a District 211 school bus March 13, 2020.

            Following the decision by Township High School District 211 to begin the school year with remote learning, the food service and transportation departments have announced a plan for student meal deliveries. 

            Beginning August 13, District transportation will start delivering meal bags to students.  Under the program, students can sign up for weekly meal deliveries by filling out the Google form here.  Once a student fills out the form, they will receive a response which will notify them of which day of the week is their delivery day.  Each meal bag will contain five breakfasts and five lunches.

            Meal bags will be available at no cost for students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.  All others can purchase the meal bags at a cost of $21.  Payments for meal bags can be made through MySchoolBucks.

            Prior to the start of the meal drop-off, District 211 will hold one additional cub-side pick-up August 12 from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.  Bags will be available at a cost of $21 for those who do not qualify for free or reduced-price lunches.  Pick-up locations for each school are listed below.

Palatine High School – North side of the building near the bus hub

Fremd High School– Door 6 near the auditorium

Conant High School– Door 25 near the atrium entrance
