Local districts continue to meet the food needs of students despite closure

Fort Zumwalt School District continues to offer meals at three locations.

Meals are provided via drive-through pick up to any resident student [high school or younger] at two locations:

  • West High, 1251 Turtle Creek Drive in O’Fallon
  • Westhoff Elementary, 900 Homefield Blvd. in O’Fallon

Meals also are provided via drive-through pick up only for students of families on the FZSD free-and-reduced program at one location:

  • DuBray Middle School, 100 Dubray Drive in St. Peters

Lunch for the current day and breakfast for the following day can be picked up from 11 a.m.-12:45 p.m., Monday – Friday. The meals will consist of grab-and-go options and include one breakfast and one lunch for each student. Students do not need to be present.

Federal guidelines have been set forth regarding who the district can serve and how it can operate its various locations, which have been strategically placed across the district. Families in need can apply for free-and-reduced status at any time using the form on the district website under the Community Resources tab.

The Francis Howell School District is providing families with five days worth of food utilizing a drive-through model for pick-ups on Tuesdays during the closure, which is slated to continue through April 24.

Pick-ups through the school’s Mobile Market program from 2-4 p.m. on Tuesdays at Francis Howell North, Francis Howell Central and Hollenbeck Middle School.

Families interested in receiving meal packages, complete the online sign-up form found here. There is no qualifying criteria and all information is kept confidential. The sign-up form will only be used so that the district can adequately prepare enough packages to serve all families that request assistance.
