Fall Meal Distribution Begins September 9
Student bikes to Meal Distribution Site

Update August 31, 2020

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced today that it will allow school districts to serve free meals to all students through December 31, 2020. As a result of this news, we have edited the article below to remove references to students needing to pay for meals. We will continue to update this story with any additional meal distribution sites, or other information as it becomes available.


The Olympia School District will distribute free grab-and-go meals this fall to students, including lunch and breakfast for the following day, at designated schools.


Students may pick up grab-and-go lunch, and if desired breakfast for the following day, at meal distribution sites starting on the first day of school Wednesday, September 9. Meals will be distributed between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. at all OSD elementary schools, Jefferson Middle School and Olympia Regional Learning Academy.

Students may visit any OSD school listed above that is distributing meals; they do not need to obtain a meal from their nearest school or the school that they are enrolled at. Distribution will be walk-up and drive-up, following school and public health department guidelines for social distancing and face coverings.

Students will have a choice of regular, vegetarian and gluten-free meals. To order gluten free meals for the school where you choose to pick up your meals, please call (360) 596-7062.
