NOTICE: Meal Distribution Change Next Week
Dear Parents and Guardians:
Beginning next week on April 6, we are going to change the way we distribute meals to our families. Instead of daily pick-ups at three locations, we will be handing out meal kits on Wednesdays only at the High School parking lot. Weekly meal kits will be available for any child age 18 and younger and will have enough food for breakfast and lunch for 5 days. To be clear, meals will continue to be distributed daily through Friday, April 3. Then next week, there will be no meals handed out on Monday or Tuesday; the first weekly pick-up will be Wednesday, April 8. Extra food will be handed out on Friday to help cover when no meals are served on Monday and Tuesday.
Place Your Orders
To facilitate this change, we will need families to place their weekly orders by 8 a.m. each Monday. You are able to customize your orders and pick what suits your family's preferences. By filling out an order form you will also be guaranteed the meals. Place your orders via this form: https://forms.gle/4BtEWjWAY78Lisjp6. (Find the live link each week at www.scasd.org/schoolmeals)
A limited number of meals will be available for those who did not order ahead of time. However, these meals will be available on a first come, first served basis.
Each lunch kit will include five servings for each child of the chosen entree along with bulk portions of vegetables, fruits and milk. Breakfasts will also be provided in the form of five complete meals, one for each child in the household.
Pickups will be on Wednesdays only from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the State College Area High School North Parking Lot. This lot is located across the street from the main high school building at 653 Westerly Parkway in State College. Upon arrival, families are asked to enter the parking lot via Plaza Drive. Food service staff will then guide you through the process. Children must be present in order for meals to be provided.
If you are unable to pick up your own meals, please fill out this form. Someone from SCASD Student Services will work with you to help meet your needs.
For any other questions or concerns, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 814-231-5095.
Director of Food Services
It is important that meals served at school are healthful. One of the hardest jobs the food service department has is to match students’ taste preferences with the Dietary Guidelines for Healthy Americans. But, that is exactly what we do. Menus are planned to meet USDA’s goals for key nutrients and to include whole grains, fruits, vegetables, lean meat and low-fat milk. To meet our nutrient goals, we start with the foods your children like best and then use purchasing and preparation practices to ensure healthfulness.Menus are updated here each month. Hard copies are sent home from school with elementary students. Middle and high school students can pick menus up at their school office and in the cafeteria.
