Breakfast, lunch available for students in Queen Creek Unified School District

Posted

The Queen Creek Unified School District Child Nutrition Department is offering breakfast and lunch to all students.

There will be two options available, at https://bit.ly/mealorders, according to a release.

For option 1, students/parents can pick up meals 10-11:30 a.m. Monday-Friday in front of the following four school sites: Eastmark High School, Queen Creek High School, Queen Creek Junior High School and Queen Creek Elementary School.

A canopy will be set up with a table, with meals priced the same way the district prices meals during the school year.

The program charges based on eligibility --- free, reduced or paid. Parents will also have to identify their students with their names or student IDs when picking up food, according to the release.

Breakfast will be offered with lunch and the student can take both or either --- it is their choice. Hot food will be offered with lunch daily at EHS, QCHS, QCE, and QCJH. These sites were selected based on their proximity to other school sites in the district so parents enrolled at GPA can swing by EHS for example for meals.

The application for free/reduced priced meals is live and can be found at family.titank12.com. Applications will be processed as soon as possible. If you completed an application in the 2019-20 school year, that only carries over for the first 30 days, after which it will default to full price so you will need to resubmit an application for the 2020-21 school year.

For option 2, parents/students can pick up a three-day meal package Mondays until in-person classes resume. These meals are to be shelf-stable/frozen items to reheat during the week. This option is based on eligibility so the meal package for a free qualifying student would cost the student no money, a reduced student for the entire week would cost $1.20, and full price is based on the students’ enrolled site (elementary, junior high or high school). The pickup schedule for parents doing once-a-week pick up on Monday is as follows:

  • 8-8:20 a.m. for GPA.
  • 8:30-8:50 a.m. for SVE.
  • 9:15-9:35 a.m. for JBE.
  • 9:45-10:05 a.m. for KMBE.
  • 10:15-10:35 a.m. for FMSE.
  • 11-11:20 a.m. for FBPE.
  • 11:45 a.m.-12:05 p.m. for DME.
  • 12:15-12:35 p.m. for NBJH.

“Parents, if you forget to fill out the form in advance, that is OK. We will have extra meals on us so it’s not a barrier by any means. Please feel free to reach out to Dustin Walker (dwalker2@qcusd.org) or call 480-987-5983 with any questions,” the release states.
