Food Delivery Information from Valli
Families have been asking about the the 16 oz plastic (polypropylene) deli containers with lids that the kitchen uses for the main menu occasionally. These 16 oz deli containers are microwavable, freezer safe, dishwasher safe, and reusable.
Also, this is a reminder that you do not need to apply for the food delivery service. This program is for any child, ages 1-18. The bus schedule for delivery is attached, and the bus always stops at the school at 2:00 pm for families to pick up lunches. The bus then leaves at 2:30. We encourage you to use the program, regardless of financial need. It makes life a lot easier for parents, as making lunch is one less thing you have to do during these busy days of distance learning!
