The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently approved extending the meal program the district offered over the summer until Dec. 31 or until funding runs out. The meal service is open to all children 18 years of age and under. No ID or paperwork is required to participate. The program is designed to ensure students have access to healthy meals while school is not in session.
Distribution will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays (excluding holidays) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Pattonville Learning Center. On Wednesday, Sept. 9, meals will also be provided from 4 to 6 p.m. This expanded pickup time is a trial only and a decision will be made later on its continuation.
Two breakfasts and lunches will be available on Mondays, and three breakfasts and lunches will be available on Wednesdays. Reheating instructions, fruits, vegetables, milks and juices will be provided by Pattonville's food service department.
When arriving by car please:
Write the number of children you are picking up meals for on a large sheet of paper and place it on your dashboard.
Stay inside your vehicle and open your trunk to allow staff to place the bags directly inside your car.
If you walk to one of the sites, staff will help you while maintaining the six-foot social distancing requirement. Please wear a mask while visiting the pickup location.
