Breakfast and Lunch Sign Up

We want your child to be able to receive a breakfast and lunch, but you must sign up for this resource: Here is some valuable information from our Food Service Director Mary Montgomery

When you email Mary Montgomery to sign up for deliveries, a response sent back to your email will include the link to fill out to be included in our food program.

  1. Deliveries will include a lunch and a breakfast for the next day

  2. To reduce human to human proximity, deliveries will be dropped off on porches, deliveries will start at 10:45, please be on the lookout for when your delivery is dropped off.

  3. If you sign up after 5PM you will be added to the list the next day; however, you will not receive food the next day: your first delivery will be the day after next. (Example - If you sign up Monday night, you go on the list Tuesday, which means your delivery will start Wednesday)

  4. As this extended break continues food items may begin to rotate back and forth from "ready to eat" food to self-stable items.

  5. Our delivery lists are growing every day, so we ask to please have patience as we work to find the best ways to provide for our students.
