Lincoln Public Schools will continue to distribute food every Monday through the month of July.

In an effort to make sure more children are able to access healthy meals, and to maintain the safety of our community, the following procedures are in place:

  • Drive-thru sites are being set up at each location and families are strongly encouraged to stay in their vehicles and pick up the child meals in the drive-thru lane. If possible, staff will place meals in the trunk of a vehicle.
  • There is a walk-up area available for families who do not have a vehicle, but long lines will not be allowed. Please follow the directions from LPS staff. Cones will be set to promote proper line spacing.
  • To keep everyone safe, please follow LPS staff directions and signage.
  • Please obey all traffic laws and do not block the regular flow of traffic, driveways or arterial streets surrounding schools.
  • The sites will open at 11 a.m. and vehicle lines will not be allowed to form more than five minutes prior to opening.
  • Each child will continue to receive five breakfasts and five lunch meals.
  • The meals are for children only, and all children 18 and younger are eligible for meals at any site.
  • Children need to be present to receive the meals. By remaining in vehicles there is limited contact or exposure.
  • Meals are also available to persons with disabilities, ages 18 to 21, who participate in LPS programs. They also need to be present to receive the meals. By remaining in vehicles there is limited contact or exposure.
