INCLEMENT WEATHER GUIDANCE

If we experience inclement winter weather that causes hazardous driving conditions all meal drops will operate on a 2-hour delay, which means routes will begin at 10am.  After the 2-hour delay, if it is determined that road conditions are still too dangerous there will be no meal drop-offs and all curbside sites will close; there will be no meal service on that day. 

UPCOMING MEAL SERVICE CLOSURES

There will be no curbside or meal drop-off/delivery service during Winter Break, December 21, 2020 – January 1, 2021.

All children/students ages 1-18 are eligible for meals at any site, not just at the school they attend. FMS asks that meals are only taken for children/students. Breakfast, lunch and snack will be served at the same time, if meals will not be eaten immediately please hold in a refrigerator promptly. All meals must be taken home, meals cannot be eaten on the school premises.

Any person picking up a meal is expected to practice responsible social distancing practices for the health and safety of food service staff.

All curbside sites and meal drop-off/delivery service will resume on Monday, January 4, 2021.

MEAL APPLICATIONS

We encourage all families to apply for Free/Reduced Meals online at this link.  A new meal application must be submitted every school year.

SPECIAL DIET MEAL ACCOMMODATIONS ARE NOT AVAILABLE

Based on the sheer volume and emergency status of the meals we are serving it is impossible to ensure that all required safety protocols could be properly enforced to ensure a special diet meal wouldn't come into contact with a known allergen. The risk of cross contamination is too great and any error made could cause great harm up to even death to a child.
