School Meals during the 2020-2021 School Year

Updated 11/10/20
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has made school meals free for all students this school year, due to the pandemic. So, whether your student is attending in-person school or is in the Remote Academy, encourage them to enjoy our free school breakfasts and lunches! FOOD DISTRIBUTION
* K-8 schools will serve breakfast and snack in the classroom or outside. These meals are pre-packaged in a single serving container (box or bag).  Grab & Go Lunches will be available to be taken home at the end of the day. * High schools will serve breakfast in school. Grab & Go lunches are available to be taken home at end of day. * For in-person students on remote days and for Remote Academy students, ‘grab and go’ breakfast and lunch will be available to pick-up at the following SCHOOL DISTRIBUTION SITES from 1-2 pm daily, Monday through Friday:
Casco Bay High School, 196 Allen Avenue Deering High School, 370 Stevens Avenue Portland High School, 284 Cumberland Avenue Talbot Elementary School (formally Riverton), 1600 Forest Avenue
NOTE: In a RED scenario (if the district goes back to full remote learning), the sites would be: Deering High, Portland High, Casco Bay High, Presumpscot Elementary, Reiche Elementary, Rowe Elementary, and Talbot Elementary For more information, see the Food Service information on the Reopening Resources site on our website.
Also, even though the meals are free this year, we could really use your help – by filling out your Free and Reduced Meal Application or Income Survey forms! Filling out these forms will help PPS qualify for grants and programs that can benefit your student and other students.
