School Nutrition Services Information


North Penn School Nutrition Services is pleased to announce that our program has been approved for FREE meals again for ALL children 18 and under. Thank you for your patience and cooperation on Monday (8/31) while we had to record and identify all students. Starting again next week (9/8) you can look forward to a seamless curbside pick-up program similar to our process all summer. No identification will be requested and children are not required to be North Penn students. If you were charged at our Monday (8/31) meal pick-up, we will be removing the charge and your meals will be free.


We will still have some of the upgraded features we planned for our curbside pick-up this fall, these changes include:


New Pick-Up days and hours will be rain or shine:

(Starting 9/8)

-Tuesdays: 11:00am to 1:00pm and 5:00pm to 7:00pm

-Wednesdays: 7:00am to 9:00am

Meals will be bundled in FULL week packs. Families only need to come to one of the above pick up times/locations per week to receive meals for all children.

Meals are all available for FREE to any child 18 and under. Child(ren) do not need to be present to receive meals.


We have expanded our Curbside Pick-Up Sites to:

A.M Kulp Elementary

Bridle Path Elementary

General Nash Elementary

Gwyn Nor Elementary

Gwynedd Square Elementary

Hatfield Elementary

Inglewood Elementary

Montgomery Elementary

North Wales Elementary

Oak Park Elementary
