Due to an extension of waivers allowed by the USDA regarding the SFSP/SSO programs, the Aurora R-VIII School District in conjunction with the Sodexo Food Service Management Company will be providing free breakfasts and lunches for all students participating virtually or enrolled in seated instruction during the first semester of the 2020-2021 school year. This change will begin on Monday, September 14, 2020.
Virtual students will be able to receive five (5) days of meals and seated students will be able to receive a reimbursable meal every day. Seated students may also receive a meal for Friday if parents call or complete the order form to participate. Parents of seated students do not have to complete the form for the free meals provided Monday through Thursday. Completion of the form is only needed if a breakfast and lunch is requested for Friday. The link to the form is included.
Meal pickup will be available starting Thursday, September 17, 2020. The meals will be picked up between 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. at the Robinson School-North Parking Lot Entrance (every Thursday). There is only one pickup location since the meals will be prepared at Robinson School.
Parents/guardians must call by 9:00 a.m. each Wednesday or complete the order form by 9:00 a.m. each Wednesday to ensure meals are made for the child or children. If you have more than one child and are requesting meals for all children, the order form will allow parents to include their names and the number of meals needed.
Again, this is completed by calling the Central Office at 678-3373 or by completing the order form. As mentioned, these breakfasts and lunches are free through December 30, 2020 or possibly longer if the waivers are again extended.
Breakfast meals will contain the main item, milk or juice and fruit. Lunch meals will consist of a main item, fruit and veggie and milk or juice. Again, parents/guardians will be picking up a full week of meals when coming to Robinson School between 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. each Thursday. A call must be received weekly or the order form completed to be placed on the meals list.
As previously mentioned, breakfasts and lunches for all students (no matter your usual level of pay-full, reduced or free) will receive free breakfasts and lunches until December 30, 2020. If you have additional questions, please call the Central Office at 678-3373.
