Greetings Osseo-Fairchild Families and Friends,
Great News! The USDA has extended the summer food service program waivers through December 31, 2020. This is the waiver that allowed us to provide fabulous meals to our families throughout the summer months. The Osseo-Fairchild School District will be providing FREE MEALS to all children in our community who are 18 years old or younger.
Students that are attending on-site will have breakfast and lunch provided to them for free at the school.Students that bring a cold lunch and would like to purchase a beverage or would like to have an additional beverage throughout the day will be charged $0.50 for their purchase. USDA only allows FREE BREAKFAST and LUNCH when a reimbursable meal is accepted. Students must take the complete meal or a charge will be made to your family account.
For students that are attending school virtually and for any child in the community that does not have access to breakfast or lunch provided by schools or daycares, meals will be provided similar to the summer food service program. If you are interested in free meals through the school, please contact Sherry Meeks at 715-597-3141 ext. 1406 and provide the following information: Name and age of each child and the selected location for pick up. You will be able to pick up these meals every Wednesday. The designated locations are at the Fairchild School Building from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM, and Osseo-Fairchild Middle/High School Building by Door #1 from 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM. Once signed up, only contact us if you no longer request services. You will pull up to the building by the front door entrance and provide the staff with the number of child meal(s) you are picking up for. The nutrition team will hand you the bags and you will place them in your car.
The dates of weekly pickups are as follows:
September 16, 23, 30
October 7, 14, 21, 28
November 4, 11, 18
Dec 2, 9, 16
No meals will be provided for November 24-27th or December 23-31, or for dates that school is not scheduled to be in session or canceled for inclement weather. Notifications will be provided if changes to the schedule are made via school messenger.
