The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Illinois State Board of Education recently announced the extension of the free summer food service program for children ages 18 and under. District 155 will now provide free grab-and-go breakfast and lunch meals for children who live in District 155 boundaries, regardless of free/reduced lunch status.
Meals will be available for pick-up at Crystal Lake Central High School, located at 45 W. Franklin Ave. in Crystal Lake (field house entrance off Walkup). Food will be provided Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
For everyone’s health and safety, bagged meals will be placed on a table for drivers to grab and go to limit exposure and adhere to social distancing guidelines. If your child has any food allergies, please check the nutritional labels on food items.
Information about continued meal distribution will be sent out via email to families, and it will also be posted to the school district websites and social media. Questions about food distribution can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
District 155 partners with Sodexo to provide food service including breakfast and lunch for our students districtwide. D155 began its partnership with Sodexo when Prairie Ridge High School opened in 1997.
Sodexo’s breakfast, lunch, and a la carte programs meet federal nutrition guidelines. Sodexo offers menu modifications such as gluten-free and vegetarian options, and continues to improve healthy options.
Sodexo is committed to student well-being and engagement. Sodexo involves students in the food service program by collaborating with student focus groups for feedback.
