Food For Thanksgiving Break


Dear Families,

We have great news about school meals! Platte County School District #1 is excited to announce that we have been approved to offer ›› FREE MEALS TO ALL CHILDREN (18 YEARS & YOUNGER) ‹‹ 

Who can get free meals? 
Any student, whether they are doing in-person learning at school or virtual/remote learning at home, can get free meals. Free meals are also available to children 18 years & younger who are not enrolled in Platte County School District #1. This includes younger children who are not in school yet, children enrolled in other districts and children who are homeschooled. 

When does this start? 
Free meals are available now. Meals will be available Wednesday November 25, 2020.
Where are the free meals available? 
Meals can be picked up at West Elementary on Mondays between 8:30am to 9:00am. Please order meals by the Friday prior to plan pick-up.
Children do not have to be present for meal pick-up.

What is being served? Monday 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches, Wednesday 3 breakfasts and 3 lunches for the remainder of the week. 

Why have things kept changing? 
Our program has to follow certain rules set at the national level by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). We have made changes based on what is allowed by the USDA.

How can I learn more? 
If you have questions, please contact the Food Service department at 307-322-4180 or
