Safe Pickup Measures, Distribution Locations, Hours and More

While District schools are closed, we remain dedicated to providing free breakfast and lunch to all children. Under Governor Evers' Safer at Home order, the District's Food Service will continue to provide meals for families. This is considered an essential service.

This service is open to ALL CHILDREN ages 0-18 . Each child will get a bag that will include meals for breakfast and lunch. The District is not selling meals for adults as we do during the summer food program. Parents can pick up their children's meals without children present.
 
This program is ONLY for meal pickup. Meals are not to be consumed on site. We encourage families to practice social distancing and not congregate at the meal pickup locations. Program locations and times are subject to change. Meals will be available while supplies last. Families do not have to qualify for free/reduced meals to participate in this program.
 
Your school social worker can help guide you to community resources if you are unable to reach the meal pickup sites. Please contact Melanie Brick at mbrick@depere.k12.wi.us or call/text 920-639-3632
 
Safety Precautions
The Food Service Department continues to take all necessary precautions as we make and serve our food during the school closure. These precautions include extensive hand washing and sanitation. Staff at the meal serving locations will be wearing gloves and long sleeves. We ask community members to stay in their vehicles, or at the recommended 6 foot separation distance, until they pick up their meals.
 
Pickup Site Procedures
Our sites feature no-contact food pickup to ensure the safety of our families and our staff.

Each site has designated entry points. Vehicles should stop at the point of service. Indicate to the food service staff how many meals you would like for your family by holding up your fingers or speaking through an open window. The food service staff will gather your meals from the distribution area and place them on a table at the stopping point. Only one person from the vehicle will exit and retrieve the meals. Proceed forward and the next vehicle approaches the designated stop point.

Walk up meal pick up will be also handled with safe distancing. Please indicate to food service staff the number of meals needed and they will be placed on table.
