The Summer Food Program Starts June 22nd.  Please follow this link for locations and times.

While schools are closed, Madison Metropolitan School District's Food & Nutrition program will be providing free meals, Monday thru Friday, to all children 18 and under.  Each child will receive a grab & go lunch plus breakfast for the next day.  Families do not have to qualify for Free/Reduced meals to participate in this program.  Also a reminder that families can apply online at the Food & Nutrition Website for Free/Reduced Benefits if their income has changed due to recent circumstances.

Starting the week of April 27th, we have switched to a 2 week menu cycle.  We have included some student favorites such as pancakes, waffles, french toast sticks, cheese pizza, hot dogs and more.  These will be served to you cold with the heating instructions for you to do at home.  Please check out the menu below.

Although we encourage drive thru, it is not required.  Walk-ups are allowed.  Meals should not be consumed on-site.  We encourage families to continue to be proactive in reducing the risk of COVID-19 by not congregating at the pick-up locations.  Guidelines for Parent Pick Up Policy.

Please see the schedule below for serving times and locations.  Please note, we will continue serving free breakfast and lunch meals to the sites through June 19th!!
