Fall 2020 Meal Distribution for Dexter Children

Recent changes from the USDA will allow us to once again offer meals free of charge to any child 18 years and younger as well as special needs students up to 26!  This program will be in place until December 31, 2020 or until we hear otherwise from the USDA.

Once a week, families may pick up seven days’ worth of breakfasts and lunches at Mill Creek on Wednesdays 11:30am-1pm starting 9/9.  To pick up meal kits for students who have special dietary requirements please contact F&N directly at 734-424-4186 at least two days prior to the pick up day.

For those who find it difficult to make the pick up time frame we will be offering home delivery.  Please sign up using this form. 

Summary:

  • Meal kits will still be available while students are in remote or virtual formats
  • Meal kits will be free to all children 18 and under or for special needs students up to 26
  • Distribution day will change to Wednesday 11:30am-1pm for weekly meal kits
  • Deliveries will be available to families who request them
  • Please still consider filling out a Free & Reduced Price Meal application at https://lunchapp.com/ - This is important for school data and is beneficial when the meal program changes
  • Meal kits must meet USDA nutritional requirements.  If there is anything in the meal kit that you can’t use please feel free to share it with another who could use it.

If you have any questions, please contact Food & Nutrition Director Jennifer Mattison at 734-424-4186 or email: mattisonj@dexterschools.org
