Meal Program Updates + Resources for Winter Break

Here are some important dates regarding our free meal program during Distance Learning. Please note, weekly meal kit pickup days will be moving from Mondays to Wednesdays in January 2021.  

  • Monday, December 14 - Last meal kit pickup date for 2020 (food for December 14-20)
  • Friday, December 18 - Last daily meal pickup for 2020 (food for December 18-20)
  • Monday, January 4 - Daily meal pickup resumes as normal, Monday-Friday
    • Because weekly meal kit pickup is moving to Wednesdays, if you normally pick up weekly meal kits, we recommend that you order daily meals for Monday, January 4 and Tuesday, January 5 and resume weekly meal kit pickups on Wednesday. 
  • Wednesday, January 6 - First weekly meal kit pick up (food for January 6-12)

Don’t forget to pre-order by 6:30 a.m. on the day of pickup. You can choose daily meals or the weekly meal kit, not both. Meals are free to all Highline students and all children ages 1-18. View our menus.
