Summer Meal Pickup Program Update

Due to the expiration of waivers that allowed us to serve non-congregate meals, we will not be allowed to host meal pickups as we had done over the last few summers. The USDA has decided to no longer continue this program, but we look forward to serving the students who will be enrolled in summer programs this year. Please feel free to contact the Child Nutrition Department at 419-334-5434 with any questions.

All students are able to receive a free breakfast and free lunch for the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years.

Students must take all meal components required by USDA/ODE to receive the free meal. If they choose not to take the full meal, they are able to purchase individual items or a la carte items for additional costs.

Funds can be added to student meal accounts using the Meal Magic Family Portal. No charges will be permitted, and no cash can be taken at the cafeteria registers.

Students may pay by check at the register, or may send cash or check to their school office.

Adult meal costs are as follows:

Breakfast: $1.50

Lunch $3.50

The prevalence of food allergies in the U.S. is on the rise.

Food allergies among children have increased by nearly 50 percent between 1997 and 2011. One in every 13 children, or roughly two in every classroom, suffers from some type of food allergy.

In addition, children with a food allergy are two to four times more likely to have conditions such as asthma and other allergies.

For some, an allergic reaction to a particular food may be uncomfortable but not severe. For others, a food reaction can be frightening and even life-threatening.

If your child has a diagnosed food allergy, please contact your child's building principal and/or school nurse.

The Fremont Board of Education has an adopted policy for accommodating students with food allergies that reduces the likelihood of an allergic reaction at school. All district child nutrition department personnel will follow the appropriate food plan established for any student having a food allergy.

Please note that we must have a Doctor's note on file if your child is diagnosed with a food allergy or sensitivity and he or she is requesting an alternative meal.

If we do not have a written excuse from the child's physician, we may be unable to provide them with an alternative meal.

Please contact Tracy Rusch, Child Nutrition Supervisor, with any questions regarding this matter.
