Meal Delivery: More Meals & More Children Are Eligible

Lea en español.

Meals Are Now Free for All Families

We’ve been delivering five breakfasts and five lunches every Wednesday to Creative Minds students enrolled in our meals program—and now the program has expanded:

Seven breakfasts and seven lunches, for each registered child, are now included with weekly deliveries.

All children who live with Creative Minds students can now receive meals, even if they don’t attend our school.

Breakfast and lunch are now free for all families, not just the families that qualify for free and reduced-priced meals.

Already Enrolled?

If you’re already enrolled in the meal-delivery program, you began receiving seven breakfasts and lunches with the September 30 delivery. There’s no need to reenroll.

Families that signed up to pay $5 per meal will now receive all meals for free. There will be no invoice for September.
