Virtual Learning Meal Plans

We are currently offering curbside meal service at 40 school sites starting the week of September 8, 2020 for all children 18 years of age and younger. Each site will have pickup one day per week for family convenience. Beginning Monday, February 1st, our Market Boxes will now contain 7 days of breakfast and lunch meals. Families may either refrigerate or freeze any portion of the meal components in the boxes to provide flexibility for households. Fresh produce will be packaged separately from the Market Boxes and milk will continue to be optional.

Food Box Pre-Orders

Families are no longer required to pre-order their meal boxes.  We currently have enough production history to be able to forecast the required number of meal boxes needed for each daily route.  However, if you are a new group and going to pick up a large number of meal boxes (10+), please contact Dustin Lundt at (608) 204-4008.  Dustin will make arrangements to have meal boxes available on a specific route and day for you.

USDA News Release

On October 9, 2020, the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) extended the nationwide waivers to continue the use of the National School Lunch Seamless Summer Option (SSO) and Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) through June 30, 2021. These waivers allow school food authorities (SFAs) to continue to serve free meals to all children 18 years of age and younger.

“As our nation reopens and people return to work, it remains critical our children continue to receive safe, healthy, and nutritious food. During the COVID-19 pandemic, USDA has provided an unprecedented amount of flexibilities to help schools feed kids through the school meal programs, and today, we are also extending summer meal program flexibilities for as long as we can, legally and financially,” said Secretary Perdue. “We appreciate the incredible efforts by our school foodservice professionals year in and year out, but this year we have an unprecedented situation. This extension of summer program authority will employ summer program sponsors to ensure meals are reaching all children – whether they are learning in the classroom or virtually – so they are fed and ready to learn, even in new and ever-changing learning environments.”
