Free breakfast and lunch for all students beginning Sept. 14

Thanks to funding from the USDA, free breakfast and lunch will be available to all Osseo Area Schools students until further notice.

All students except those enrolled in the Distance Learning Academy

  • Sept. 14 – 25 (Distance Learning model)

Free meals will be available for curbside pick-up at all elementary, middle, and senior high schools from 7:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. daily. A breakfast and lunch bundle will be available each day.

  • Beginning Sept. 28 (Hybrid Learning model)

Free breakfast and lunch will be served to students in school on their in-person learning days. At the end of each in-person learning day, free breakfast and lunch bundles will be offered to students to take home for the next day. If you do not wish for your child to be given meals for their home learning days, please opt out of this service.

Students enrolled in the Distance Learning Academy

  • Sept. 14 – 25

Free meals will be available for curbside pick-up at all elementary, middle, and senior high schools from 7:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. daily. A breakfast and lunch bundle will be available each day.

  • Beginning Sept. 25

Free 7-day meal boxes will be available for pick-up on Fridays beginning Sept. 25. The meal boxes will contain seven breakfasts and seven lunches intended to be consumed the following Monday – Friday. The menu can be viewed on the district website, www.district279.org, and will reflect the same offerings that we offer to non-DLA students.

Please note: The free 7-day meal boxes will be available only on a pre-order basis.  If you would like to receive meal boxes, you must sign up by 12:00 p.m. on the Thursday prior to your first pickup to allow time for processing and meal preparation. Once you have signed up, meals will continue to be prepared for you weekly. If you wish to stop receiving meal boxes, you must cancel by 12:00 p.m. on the Thursday after your final pickup.
