Dear D49 Families, 

We are pleased to announce School District 49 will provide meals at no cost for all learners through December. This is an official extension of the service that began at the outset of E49 this spring, which is fully supported by the United States Department of Agriculture’s National School Lunch and Breakfast Program. D49 will continue to offer grab-and-go meals for families who choose to learn remotely. 

We will provide grab-and-go meals from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Monday through Friday at the following locations through Sept. 11 (excluding Sept. 4 and 7): 

Starting Sept. 14, families who choose remote learning will soon have the opportunity to order meals ahead of time at the nutrition services webpage and to select the most convenient pick up location. Families with students at multiple schools may pick up all meals at the school of your choice. We will be sending out the reservation website information soon. 

And a reminder, We will not be offering meal service Friday, Sept. 4, and Monday, Sept. 7, due to the Labor Day holiday.

Thank you for your time and attention. Please continue to watch our regular channels of communication for updates, and email questions to Monica Deines-Henderson at
