PREORDER FREE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH MEALS
Support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Summer Food Service Program has made it possible for all District 96 families to receive free breakfast and lunch meals for their students. Families are asked to preorder meals for the week to come by 10 AM on the Friday before it.
Due to school holidays on Nov. 25–27, families will receive breakfasts and lunches (vegetarian option is available) for all five weekdays on Mon., Nov. 23. Pick up meals 11 AM–2 PM on Nov. 23 at either Twin Groves or Woodlawn Middle School.
This program serves students through age 18, but the current online ordering system does not accommodate students who are not currently enrolled in District 96. Please request meals for your older students from the staff delivering your preordered meals to your vehicle. Extra meals will be available to meet this anticipated need.
INVOLVE KIDS and HELP RESTOCK THE PANTRY
Paper bags are needed at the ELC Food Pantry. If you’d like to involve your children in helping their community, grocery size paper bags decorated with their hopeful messages and artwork will be welcomed.
Donations of the following pantry items from families able to do so also are needed:
macaroni & cheese (cups or boxes) and Helper Meal Kits, canned foods (veggies/fruits/tuna/chicken/beans), granola bars, pasta sauce/pasta, cereals and oatmeal, and dried beans and rice.
Please deliver on weekdays when school is in session only to collection boxes outside the ELC front entrance, 990 Corporate Woods Parkway, Vernon Hills, from 8 AM–3 PM. Ring the doorbell if delivering perishable items or gift cards or if there is not a collection box outside the door. Please wear a mask and observe social distancing when delivering your donations.
