MEAL SERVICE - WEEKLY MEAL KITS FOR THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR
- The USDA has granted BISD a special provision to provide free weekly meal kits to children 18 years and younger.
- The centralized pick-up is at Sakai Intermediate School on Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
- Families choosing to participate in this program will pre-order their meals each week by the end of the day Monday, via a Google form, for meal kit pick up on Friday.
- Each meal kit is packaged to provide meals for the calendared school days for the following week (i.e. for the week of August 31st - September 4th three meals would be provided due to August 31st and September 1st being non-school days).
Free & Reduced Price Meals
Even though meals for the 2020-21 school year are free for all students, it is recommended that people apply for the Free & Reduced Lunch Program if they qualify. The program offers additional benefits such as reduced class/athletic fees and reduced PSAT & SAT testing.
Free and reduced price lunches may be obtained by qualified families within the guidelines set by the US Department of Agriculture. Applications are available online via Skyward by selecting Food Services on the left-hand menu bar > Applications > Add Application or via this link: (https://www.bisd303.org/cms/lib/WA01001636/Centricity/Domain/60/2020-21FreeandReducedPriceApplication-Public2.pdf), at each school or from the Food & Nutrition Services office at 206-780-1844.
If your child has serious food allergies, please contact the school nurse.
