Meals during Remote Learning

A PSD staff person hands sack meals to students.

At schools and nearby locations 

Ensuring kids have access to nutritious meals during the 2020-21 school year is a top priority.

Transitioning to Phase 3 learning and meals 

On their in-person school days, students at all schools will have the option to receive breakfast and lunch. There will be a hot breakfast meal to be eaten that day, and students can choose to receive a second, non-perishable breakfast for the following morning. Depending on their school, elementary students will either pick up meals and eat them in the cafeteria or outside, or staff will deliver sack meals to the classroom. Secondary students will pick up meals and eat in the cafeteria, designated common spaces or outside. Student may also bring their own lunches.  

  • Free breakfasts and lunches will continue to be available to all students (18 years and under) through December, thanks to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s reimbursement program.   
  • PSD’s current meal distribution sites (18 schools and mobile serving locations at which meals are distributed from buses) will operate through Wednesday, Sept. 30. 
  • A transition in services will occur thereafter. From Thursday, Oct. 1-Friday, Oct. 9., meals will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. outside at only the 18 school sites. PSD's currently operated mobile sites will close as bus drivers transition to bussing students in Phase 3. 
  • In order to balance needs across the district with a transition to Phase 3, on Monday, Oct. 12, PSD will open meal distribution sites outside at Webber Middle School, Kinard Middle School, Lincoln Middle School, Boltz Middle School and Eyestone Elementary. They will be open 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on scheduled school days.  
  • Only students doing in-person learning that day will get meals at their schools. On their remote days, students can pick up meals at one the five school distribution sites. 


Sack meals available to students

PSD Child Nutrition and the Transportation Departments have teamed up to make sure meals are available to students at several locations across the district.

PSD offers sack meals from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday, at numerous PSD schools and additional locations (on scheduled school days). Please note that meal sites and hours may change as needs and the program are evaluated.

Students (any child 18 or younger)  can get two sack meals - one sack lunch for that day and a sack breakfast for the following morning. Students do not have to be there in-person to receive meals.

Menus are available here. 

Cost:  There is no cost for meals. Parents are encouraged to still apply for free and reduced-priced meals, which helps with school funding.  For information or to apply, visit the Free and Reduced-Priced Meals website.
