Information

FOOD SERVICES

ALL area children 18 and under are eligible for free breakfast and lunch meals during the summer. Due to space and product constraints, curbside meal pickup during the summer will now be conducted four days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday). Previously, pickup had been planned to occur twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday).

Beginning June 3 through August 11, Food Services will operate two curbside meal pickup locations, one at Huntley High School (Door 10, by the Field House) and one at Conley Elementary School (in the large bus lot on the north side of the school).

  • Both sites will be open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9:00-11:00 a.m.
  • Thursday will include pickup of meals for Thursday and Friday.
  • Meals are free and available to all children 18 and under residing within the district.
