Free Summer Meals

USD 428 Food Service is ready to serve our community children this summer!

  • July 5 - July 29: Eisenhower, Park, & Riley 11 am - 1 pm


Each weekday, USD 428 Food Service will provide free meals for ALL Children 18 years of age and younger at elementary school locations from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm in the gyms. Children will be provided with a to-go lunch and a breakfast pack. They can choose to eat in the gyms or take the meals home.

*Summer School Students (June) and REACH Participants (July) will be invited to eat meals on-site in the cafeteria, they will not receive to-go meals.

Parent Pick-Up Permits will be allowed again this summer. Parents/Guardians will bring all children for the first time with them to their preferred school location. This allows parents/guardians permission to pick up meals without the children present. Parents/guardians MUST have this permit with them every day to pick up the meals, with no exceptions.

**NEW this summer, permits can only be used at the location where they are issued. Meaning, that parents cannot switch their pick-up location. Permits for families utilizing Jefferson & Lincoln in June can be reissued for another location in July.

These meals are FREE to all children, no income guidelines, and no registration or paperwork. We highly encourage all our families to eat with us.

Daily menus can be viewed online or using the "Web Menus" app which is available in both Apple & Andriod platforms. Click here to learn more about menus.

See you this summer!
