Grab & Go Meal Program Update
We would like to provide information on school meals for all students beginning September 8, 2020. As was previously announced, we will begin the school year in a 100% off-site learning model. Due to this, we will continue our Grab & Go meal program to provide breakfast and lunch to District students.
The Grab & Go meal sites are outlined below. Meals are served from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Each meal includes breakfast and lunch. Menu information can be found at MealViewer, under the Grab & Go menu. Meals are free and available to all Iowa City Community School District students and children do not need to be present in order for a guardian to pick-up a meal for the child.
Grab & Go meal sites beginning September 8, 2020:
City High School
Hills Elementary School
Liberty High School
North Central Junior High School
Northwest Junior High School
South East Junior High School
West High School
We are excited to announce that the USDA has extended our waiver allowing us to continue to offer free meals to all students. The waiver has been extended through December 2020. While meals are currently free for all students through December under this waiver, it is critical that families still complete the Free and Reduced Lunch application since meals may not be free beginning in January 2021. The District provides free and reduced meals to families that qualify; however, you must fill out an application each year as federal income guidelines change. Please be aware that even if you applied last year, you need to reapply by September 30, 2020, to prevent a potential loss in benefits. If you have already filled out an application or have received a benefits notification from the District’s Nutrition Services Department for this year, NO additional action is necessary. Please contact the Nutrition Services Office at (319) 688-1021 if you have any questions about your student’s meal status or if you are unsure about whether an application is needed at this time.
Thank you again to our Nutrition Services team for their continued dedication to the students in our community. We will provide additional guidance for meal pick-up during the hybrid learning model prior to the District moving into that model. #ICCSDtogether
