  • Free 7-day meal boxes are available for pick-up on Fridays. The meal boxes will contain five breakfasts and five lunches intended to be consumed the following Monday – Friday. The menu can be viewed on the district website, district279.org, and will reflect the same offerings that we offer to non-DLA students.

If you would like to receive meal boxes, you must sign up by 12:00 p.m. on the Thursday one week prior to your first pickup to allow time for processing and meal preparation. Once you have signed up, meals will continue to be prepared for you weekly. If you wish to stop receiving meal boxes, you must cancel by 12:00 p.m. on the Thursday a week prior to your final pickup.

If you would like a refund of the money in your child’s lunch account please contact the Lead Food Service Specialist, Julie Moberg by email at MobergJ@district279.org.
