Meals for Remote Learning

The food service department is pleased to announce that we will be offering FREE meals to all SMSD students regardless if they are learning remote, hybrid or in person. This includes breakfast and lunch meals.

Meals are funded entirely by USDA as part of their Summer Meals Program extension. These free meals will continue as long as federal funding is available and could end prior to 12/31/20. We encourage families to continue to apply for free and reduced meals in the event the funding is no longer available by clicking here. Qualifying may allow for other support through the district so it is important to continue to apply for free and reduced meals.

  • Meals will be available for pick up at all 47 SMSD schools.
  • Pick up on Fridays from 7:00-9:00AM.
  • No advance ordering is needed. (The online digital ordering system has been disabled.)

During remote learning each week’s pick up will include 7 breakfast and 7 lunches for each student.

  • Each breakfast meal includes these components:  fruit, grain, and milk
  • Each lunch meal includes these components:  protein, fruit/vegetable, grain, and milk

Food safety tips and reheat instructions

When the district is able to move to the hybrid model, the students will receive their in-person meals at no cost during the two days they are in school. Meals may be picked up on Friday for the other 5 days of the week. Any extra ala carte purchases the students make while in-person learning will require money to be on their food service account.

Meals are prepared by District Food Services staff and distributed following food safety and sanitary practices.
