Free Meals for Children in Northwest District, Ages 1-18
We are happy to announce that as of today, Sept. 15, 2020, all children ages 1 to 18 years old will receive free breakfast and lunch in the Northwest R-I School District.
This is an extension of a state-funded program to feed children that will be available until state funds run out or through Dec. 18, the last day of school of the first semester, whichever comes first.
The program is retroactive to Aug. 31, 2020, so meals purchased on a student’s account between Aug. 31, 2020 and today will be credited. Please allow four to six weeks for the credits to appear on your student’s account.
In an effort to support Northwest families, meal pickup is available to students who are hybrid, all-virtual, or children living in the district but not enrolled at a Northwest school, ages 1-18.
Students who are in school five days a week do NOT need to fill out this form; they will receive free meals at school.
If you have not completed the Free and Reduced Lunch Application, we encourage you to do so.
If you have questions about the program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Northwest Food Service office at 636-671-3554.
Meal Pick-Up Form
In an effort to provide support for Northwest families who rely on the availability of school meals, we will have breakfast and lunch pick-up for Northwest K-12 students who are all virtual or on a hybrid schedule. Students who are all virtual will receive five days of meals and students who are on a hybrid schedule will receive three days of meals.
