Free Student School Lunches

  • Beginning Monday, 9/14/20, the Southern Lehigh School District is pleased to announce the availability of free meals for all students and children in the community, up to and including 18 years of age, through the Seamless Summer Option, a Federally funded nationwide waiver for feeding children, due to the COVID virus. 

    All enrolled students in Kindergarten through 12th grade are qualified to receive a free standard lunch which includes the main or alternate entrée, fruit, vegetable, and milk or a bagged lunch in school; or a bagged lunch while learning virtually.

    Students should follow regular meal selection and go through the lunch lines as normal, but no student will be charged for the standard school lunch or bagged lunches for virtual learning. Students do NOT need to pre order lunch for consumption during in-school learning, only for bagged lunches during virtual learning. Any extra items and A la Carte purchases will be charged to student accounts. The opportunity to sign-up will be communicated prior to each upcoming week and is requested in order to help us prepare bagged meals each week.

    The Southern Lehigh Food Services Department has also been granted a waiver to provide breakfast and lunch meals for each day of the week and weekend. SLSD will be offering "Meals To Go" bags for pick up for fully remote students or community children up to and including 18 years of age. This "Meals to Go" Heat & Eat Breakfast and Lunch Kit Order Form below form families to sign up to receive a package of meals for each day of the week. These meals are also provided by a Federal waiver and do not add any cost to SLSD taxpayers.

    **For K-6 students who are learning virtually full time or non-enrolled children in the SLSD community, please follow the High School bagged lunch distribution schedule and pick up your child/children's meals at the HS, order your child's bagged lunch as usual, but please indicate that you will be picking the lunches up at the HS. If families in the SLSD community cannot order their bagged meals online, they can still pick up bagged lunches at the scheduled times at the High School.**
