Free breakfast and free lunch to all students

 

Beginning September 14, 2020, The Gilbert School Food and Nutrition Services Program began serving FREE LUNCH and FREE BREAKFAST to all of the students at The Gilbert School. The Gilbert School Food and Nutrition Services Program is able to do this for our students on behalf of the USDA extending the SSO Program (Seamless Summer Operations). The USDA has extended the SSO Program until December 31, 2020. All students will receive one free lunch and one free breakfast Monday thru Friday until December 31, 2020. Beginning January 1, 2021 all students will go back to their regular eligibility, (free, reduced or full pay). 

How the Program will run?

  • On Mondays and Tuesdays Cohort A will be getting Breakfast and Lunch at school

  • On Thursdays and Fridays Cohort B will be getting Breakfast and Lunch at school

  • When students arrive there will be a kiosk for breakfast outside, one on the drop off side of the school and one on the bus side of the school for easy accessibility for all students

  • Cohort C will have curbside pickup Monday thru Friday

  • Parents and Guardians are allowed to pick up student meals

  • There will be four choices of how you would like to pick up meals

  1. Pick up meals for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday

  2. Pick up meals for Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

  3. Pick up meals for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

  4. Pick up meals for each day

  • Cohort A will pick up meals on Wednesday

  • Cohort B and C will pick up meals on Monday

  • You may also pick up daily if you choose

  • Pick up is on the students drop off side of the school

The Gilbert School Food and Nutrition Program is in the process of installing new order online software, once completed you will be able to order how many days of meals you would like to pick up. More information will be available after completion of install. For now please email Lynn Metcalf at metcalfl@gilbertschool.org, I will need each student’s name and how many lunches and breakfasts you will be picking up, and the day you will be picking them up. There will be a pick up time from 11:00-12:00 Monday thru Friday.

Please continue filling out Free and Reduced applications and sending them in for approval, as the SSO Program is only temporary and students will be going back to their original eligibility.
Thank you,
