FREE breakfasts and lunches through December 31, 2020
On August 31, the USDA issued waivers to all schools offering the option of implementing the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) until December 31. The Illinois State Board of Education Nutrition Division has offered guidance in implementing this program to all schools in Illinois. In accordance with this, Cerro Gordo Schools will begin offering free breakfasts and lunches to anyone in our community between the ages 1 and 18 years old. This includes in-person, remote, home-schooled learners as well as any others not enrolled in our district.
In person learners will continue to pick up their breakfasts and take them to eat in their first hour classroom, and have their lunches delivered to their classrooms as they have been.
For all others, lunches will be picked up DAILY at the main entrance of the High School between 11am and 12 noon. Breakfasts for the following day may be picked up at the same time. In order for the school to be prepared, please place your orders 1 week in advance by Friday mornings at 8 am.
These lunches and breakfasts will follow the High School menus which can be found on the school website. This service will begin on Monday, September 14. If you are interested in receiving these free meals, please contact Kristin Robinson at (217) 763-5221 x1250 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you!
