Free Meals

Welcome back! Online learning doesn’t mean you have to miss out on nutritious school meals.


On Wednesday, January 27 (only), we will offer two hot meal pick up options.  The options will be Chicken Tenders or a Fish Sandwich.  For those families that order through SchoolCafe, you will see these two options to choose from for your student.  If you also order for siblings, the siblings will receive the same meal choice unless you contact the Nutrition Services office at 816-359-4090 or to let us know differently.  If you do email, please be specific with your student's name (not sibling) and the choice so that we can add this to our spreadsheet.

For Non-Park Hill Families, please continue to use the Google doc as normal for ordering the number of meals and you can request your choice upon arrival at Congress or Walden.


Meals are free for all children, ages 18 and under, through the end of the school year. If you think you might qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, please fill out the form in our School Cafe App so that you are covered when this free program ends.


We have two meal pickup options available for students who are learning from home, whether in Park Hill Online or on distance days of the split-mode hybrid plan. 
For both options, you must pre-order before picking up your food.
