The De Pere School District Food Service is moving its daily student grab and go drive up meal distribution site from Optimist Park to De Pere Middle School.
Walk up service will continue at Optimist Park.
In addition, there is a new route to access the Dickinson Elementary School meal site.
De Pere Middle School, 700 Swan Rd. De Pere (BACK PARKING LOT)
There are two ways to access the site with your vehicle: you can enter the school's back parking lot at the intersection of Merrill St. and Lone Oak Rd. or you can enter the back parking lot by turning onto the Libal St. Access Road from Chicago Street. Follow arrows/signs.
Dickinson Elementary School Location
For pickup at Dickinson Elementary School, enter from Merrill St (near the water tower).
Optimist Park - 801 Cook St. will remain open for walk up distribution.
Monday - Friday 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
This service is open to ALL CHILDREN ages 0-18 . Each child will get a bag that will include meals for breakfast and lunch. The District is not selling meals for adults as we do during the summer food program. Parents can pick up their children's meals without children present.
This program is ONLY for meal pickup. Meals are not to be consumed on site. We encourage families to practice social distancing and not congregate at the meal pickup locations. Program locations and times are subject to change. Meals will be available while supplies last. Families do not have to qualify for free/reduced meals to participate in this program.
Your school social worker can help guide you to community resources if you are unable to reach the meal pickup sites. Please contact Melanie Brick at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 920-639-3632
The Food Service Department continues to take all necessary precautions as we make and serve our food during the school closure. These precautions include extensive hand washing and sanitation. Staff at the meal serving locations will be wearing gloves and long sleeves. We ask community members to stay in their vehicles, or at the recommended 6 foot separation distance, until they pick up their meals.
Pickup Site Procedures
Our sites feature no-contact food pickup to ensure the safety of our families and our staff.
Each site has designated entry points. Vehicles should stop at the point of service. Indicate to the food service staff how many meals you would like for your family by holding up your fingers or speaking through an open window. The food service staff will gather your meals from the distribution area and place them on a table at the stopping point. Only one person from the vehicle will exit and retrieve the meals. Proceed forward and the next vehicle approaches the designated stop point.
Walk up meal pick up will be also handled with safe distancing. Please indicate to food service staff the number of meals needed and they will be placed on table.
