Niles Township Families Can Pick Up Free Breakfasts, Lunches For Kids Age 18 and Under
Update to Meal Schedule - as of 10/26/20
There will be no pickup on Tuesday -11/3/20, due to election day, therefore Thursday - 10/29 - we are handing out additional meals to cover those days.
Additionally, we are going to start a 4 PM – 6 PM pick up time on Tuesday and Thursday at Niles North and Niles West in addition to the 11 AM – 1 PM.
Families living in Niles Township may now get free lunches and breakfasts for anyone 18 years of age and younger, seven days a week. Niles Township High School District219 is expanding the program beginning October 13, 2020, in collaboration with QuestFood Management Services, the district’s onsite food service provider.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended the free meals program previously known as the Summer Food Service Program (SFPS), which provides children and teens age 18 and under with free meals when in-person school is not in session. With many students now learning from home or a combination of home learning and some days at school (hybrid model), the free meals program has been extended in an effort to ensure kids have access to healthy and nutritious meals.
There is no registration, paperwork or income verification required. Picking up the meals is easy for busy parents/guardians. Children do not have to be present and no ID, income verification or paperwork is required.
Meals will be distributed on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. On Tuesdays, three days of meals will be provided, including hot, cold and reheatable meals, and on Thursdays, four days of meals will be provided.
There are three pickup locations:
Niles West High School, 5701 Oakton St., Skokie
Door #13 (South Lobby)
Niles North High School, 9800 Lawler Ave., Skokie
Door #12 (Athletics Entrance on west side of school)
Julia S Molloy Education Center, 8701 Menard Ave., Morton Grove
