On August 31st, the USDA announced new meal program waivers, which allows our district to once again provide healthy meal access to all children in the community ages 18 and younger. We are excited to have the opportunity to expand our meal program services!
School meals are distributed in a curbside drive thru format at the front of Hadley Junior High. Meals are distributed every WEDNESDAY. Meal packs contain BREAKFAST and LUNCH for 5 days. Breakfast and lunches will be individually packed so students can easily take them wherever they are learning.
Meals will be provided to children 18 and younger, FREE of charge. There is NO pre-order required or no student ID required.

What if my child is learning in person at school? Where do they get school lunch? If your child is learning in school, your child is required to bring the school lunch to school with them. Participation in district offered meal program is optional. If you choose to participate, the school meals should be picked up on Wednesday to bring to school. If you choose not to participate, your family can choose to make lunch at home to bring with for consumption at school. Thermal totes are recommended so your child can safely take the cold meals to school as the items are perishable. No meals or milk will be provided at school on in person school days. Parents/guardians are required to send meals with their child and are encouraged to send refillable water bottles with their child.
What if my child is remote learning or not able to attend in person learning on any specific day?
Curbside meals are available to all children (18 and younger) to matter where they are learning. All students are welcome to meal at no charge during our designated curbside pick up times at Hadley Junior High.
What is the menu? Click here to go directly to the menu page. Menus meet the nutritional guidelines for the USDA funded National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program. Meals contain all components of the school meal: entrée, fruit, and vegetables.
What if I need vegetarian meals or have a child that needs accommodations due to a severe food allergy?
All meals have a vegetarian item, as any meat items are packed separately, so there is no need to place a special request for vegetarian meals. If you need an accommodation due to food allergy, please CLICK HERE to complete a menu modification form.
What if I cannot pick up meals? Please contact Tess Ngo, Supervisor of Food & Nutrition Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work to accommodate families on a case by case basis through our home meal delivery system.
