From our Nutritional Services Department

United Stated Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended the funding to provide free meals to all children ages 1-18 through June, 30, 2020 or until the federal funding is gone. Nutritional Services continues to offer free meals to all children ages 1-18 regardless of income level. Each meal bag contains 5 breakfast, lunches and afterschool snacks for your students to enjoy.


Meal Pick Up times and Locations:


Stripes Students (previously in school on Monday and Tuesday): Tuesday Nights at Fridley High School from 4:30-6:00 pm

Paws Students (previously in school on Thursday and Friday): Thursday Nights at Fridley High School from 4:30-6:00 pm

Distance Academy Students: Wednesday at Fridley Middle School from 11:30-1:30 pm

There is no meal pick up from December 23-Janaury 4, 2021. Regular scheduled meal pick up times begin on January 5, 2021.

While all students are distance learning, if you are unable to make the assigned pick up day, you can pick up at any of the locations or times. Children do not need to be present to pick up meals. We hope that you will take advantage of the free meals to help stretch your household food budget and support the Nutritional Services Department. If you have any questions regarding meal pick please contact Renee Arbogast at 763-502-5022

With Our Thanks...

Jack's PJ and Pancake Party

Before the Hayes winter break, we had over 450 participants that attended our Drive By Pancake Breakfast with Jack! A HUGE thank you to our Hayes nutrition department, Nadine and Heather, for all their hard work to make this event a success for our families!

For over a decade, we host pajama breakfast day before winter break and did not want to forgo our Hayes tradition and the fun celebration. We wore pajamas, danced, had a virtual Winter Festival complete with an art project from Ms. Charles and Jack had a fun surprise for all!

Thank you to all that were able to participate!
