Free Meals for Children

  • Pick Up Free Meals for the Week on June 15

    Throughout the school closure, Kent School District will continue to feed all children in our community, up to age 18, whether they are on the Free or Reduced Meal program or not.

    • No KSD student will be turned away.
    • Children do not have to be present for someone to pick up a meal for them.

    Meals are available at select schools, community partner sites, and bus stops across our district every Monday through June 15.

    One Box = 10 Meals for Every Child

    Please visit one of our drive-through or walk-up sites to pick up a box of meals for each child in your household. Each box contains:

    • 5 breakfast meals
    • 5 lunch meals
    • Menu with instructions for refrigerating and heating the items inside

    These boxes are medium-sized (16 inches by 10 inches by 10 inches). You are welcome to bring your own wagon, bag, or stroller to carry them home.

    Practice Social Distancing at Every Site

    For the health and safety of all, please practice social distancing when picking up meals by staying at least six feet away from other people. Meals may not be consumed at the pick-up site. We all need to do our part to help slow the spread of this virus.

    Pick-Up Times & Locations

    Visit a participating school, youth center, or bus stop to pick up meals. Service times and locations are subject to change. Please refer to this webpage before each visit.

    Meal Service Outside KSD

    If your child attends school in KSD but lives within another district, your child can receive meals from the district where you are currently living. Please check that district's website for their service information.

    Pick Up a Hotspot While Supples Last
