Grab and Go Meals during Distance Learning

Hello everyone,

We had a great end to the Summer Feeding Program.  Since the school closures, 600,000 meals were served to students and children in the community.  Today, August 28th, was the last day of free meal service.

Below is updated information on the Grab and Go Meals starting September 1, 2020.

Families may visit https://www.antiochschools.net/nutrition-services for menus and the most current information regarding meal pick-ups.

During Distance Learning, Grab-and-Go meals are available for curbside pick-up Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at the following locations:

Antioch Middle School (1500 D Street)

Belshaw Elementary School (2801 Roosevelt Lane)

Carmen Dragon Elementary School (4721 Vista Grande Drive)

Deer Valley High School (4700 Lone Tree Way)

Fremont Elementary School (1413 F Street)

Kimball Elementary School (1310 August Way)

Lone Tree Elementary School (1931 Mokelumne Drive)

Marsh Elementary School (2304 G Street)

Mission Elementary School (1711 Mission Drive)

Orchard Park School (5150 Live Oak Avenue, Oakley)

Park Middle School (1 Spartan Way)

Turner Elementary School (4207 Delta Fair Boulevard)

Students received either a blue, green or orange “Meal Pick Up Instructions” flyer from their school.  The flyer must be presented at their car windows in order to obtain a breakfast and/or lunch for enrolled AUSD students.  A picture of the flyer or Student ID cards are also acceptable if flyers were left at home.  If neither is available, Nutrition Services staff will take down student information.  No student will be refused a meal.  If households have multiple students attending different AUSD schools, parents/guardians only need to visit one site to obtain breakfast and lunch for all students.  Students do not need to be present.

A free supper and free snack will be included with every bag distributed.

Students enrolled at one of the eight (8) Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) Sites may receive free meals regardless of eligibility status.  CEP sites include Live Oak, Fremont, Marsh, Antioch Middle, Turner, Kimball, Mission, and Lone Tree.

Prices for meals are as follows for students enrolled in non-CEP sites:

Breakfast – Free as eligible, Reduced-price is $0.25, Paid is $2.00;
Lunch – Free as eligible, Reduced-price is $0.40, Paid for grades K-8 is $3.25/grades 9-12 is $3.50.

Families may pay for their student’s meals by visiting www.myschoolbucks.com

An email was sent to parents/guardians if their student qualifies for free or reduced-price school meals.  To view or print a copy of the letter, families may visit www.schoollunchstatus.com.  If families did not receive a letter and they believe their student qualifies for meal benefits, families may apply online at www.schoollunchapp.com.  A new application must be completed annually.  Additional information is posted on the meal pick up flyers for families without internet access.

You can also click on the Distance Learning channel to see more information.  

On Monday, September 7, 2020, there will be no meal service in observance of Labor Day.  Due to USDA guidelines, breakfast and lunch may not be distributed on non-school days.

As always, if you have any questions, please contact the Nutrition Services Office.

Sincerely,

Stephanie Siemering
