  • Grab & Go pick up is from 9am - 1pm
  • Your child does not need to be present

    • Use this form to request a delivery. This is a NEW form as of at least Mon, April 27.
    • Note: The maximum number of deliveries per household per week is two. Additionally, due to the high volume of requests, please be aware that meals may take up to 2-4  business days to be delivered.
  • New link! 5.19.20: Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) application from the Illinois Department of Human Services. Families can participate in both P-EBT and any meal distribution program that is currently available at their school. They do not have to choose one or the other, as these programs operate independent of each other. Please share this information widely to ensure families in need are receiving all available support during this difficult time. Flyers in English & Spanish here.
