Despite meals being free through June 30, 2021, it is still very important all families fill out an application for educational benefits.  Qualifying for educational benefits means a student(s) will have access to free breakfast and lunch, reduced fees for activities and provides critical funding for the district and schools.

Meal bundles for distance learners will be available for pick up at all 4 distribution locations through Wednesday, February 24 and at Cooper High School, as noted above, through Friday, March 12. 

Meal bundles for our distance learners will be available by sign up on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to noon at Cooper High School beginning the week of March 15. We’ll provide updated information on the sign up process and updated meal location sites in early March. We hope to add additional meal bundle locations in early April.
