Meals can be served to any person under the age of 18 or age 19 if the person has disabilities. One breakfast and one lunch per child.

Junction City School District will be serving breakfast and lunch at the Laurel and JCHS Cafeterias. Breakfast and Lunch serve times are from 9:15 AM to 10:30 AM. Families should plan to take both breakfast and lunch off site during this time. Children do not have to be present at these sites.

Beginning Monday, March 23rd, we will be providing mobile pick-up locations.

We will have a bus with the meals at the HWY 36 Weigh Station from 10-10:30 and at the Victory Gardens Nursery (on Victory Dr. off of River Rd.) from 11-11:30.
Children DO have to be present at these pick-up sites per regulations, but they can stay in the car.

If you live outside of the city limits and are unable to access any of the pick-up locations, please complete the request form and we will arrange delivery for a weeks’ worth of breakfasts and lunches for each child.

Meal Request Form

If you have a friend or neighbor who will require delivery but does not have access to the internet, please check in with them and submit a form for them. They can also call Katie Bradford at 541-998-6311 x5621 if they don’t have access to internet.

Lowell School District

Starting  Tuesday, March 24, 2020, we will be delivering, by van, bagged breakfast and lunch to each bus and van stop on the Lowell School District bus and van routes.

Each day, lunch, and breakfast for the following morning, will be dropped off to each youth present at the bus stop. The delivery will follow the same routes as the morning pick up of students. The routes will begin at 11:00am and will finish at approximately 12:30pm. To calculate the approximate time of the food delivery, add 4 hours to the time that the student is normally picked up at that bus/van stop. For example, if your student is normally picked up at 7:08am, your approximate time to pick up the food delivery will be 11:08am. These times are approximate and we are doing our best to maintain the schedule. These deliveries will arrive vial Lowell School District vans.

Youth are able to receive their meals from any bus/van stop and do not have to use the stop that they normally use for school.

We will continue to have meal pick up at Lundy Elementary from 11:00am – 1:00pm as well. Please remember that youth, ages 0-18, must be present to receive their meals either from the bus stops or at Lundy.
