    Free Student Meal Service 

    The USDA is now allowing school districts to resume FREE meal service for all students for the 2020-2021 school year. We will continue to utilize the electronic pre-order system to ensure we produce enough meal boxes and order enough milk. Meal box orders should be placed each Wednesday for pick-up the following Wednesday.

    You will find that the online order form has been simplified, so only one order needs to be placed for all children in your household ages 1-18. The order form will be open each Wednesday. For more information about meal boxes and to find the order link, click HERE.

    For assistance in filling out the order form or if you do not have internet access, call the Meal Order Hotline at 206-393-4103. Calls will be responded to on Wednesdays from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm. Learn more here…
