Important Information from Nutrition Services

The start of In-Person Hybrid Instruction is right around the corner, and our Nutrition Services department has been hard at work developing a plan for how to continue to provide free meals for all children during both Hybrid and CDL. The USDA has provided waivers for the rest of the school year that allow any child (ages 1-18) to access free meals.

Starting April 5, meal service via bus routes will be discontinued.

If you attend Hybrid Elementary School:

● Hybrid students can receive a free daily meal bag to take home.

● Two days of meals will be sent home on Tuesday.

● No registration is required.

If you attend CDL or are a non-enrolled community child:

● All CDL students and children not enrolled in the Beaverton School District can access a free 5-Day Meal Bag every Wednesday from 11am-12pm.

● Meal bags include 5 breakfasts, 5 lunches, and 5 supper snacks. Only children aged 4 and older are eligible for supper snacks.

● Families can select a school to pick up these meals in the Meal Bag Registration Form.

● Registration is strongly encouraged.

● Children do not need to be present to pick-up meal bags.

● Masks are required to be worn by anyone picking up meal bags.
