An elementary student gives the thumb's-up sign.Beginning Monday, to save families time picking up free breakfast and lunch for virtual students, the Quakertown Community School District is changing its pickup schedule.

Starting October 19th, free meal pickup will be held two days a week, Mondays and Wednesdays. On Mondays, students can receive meals for two days, and on Wednesday for three days.

As many families are aware, elementary students began full-day live schedules five days a week on Monday. Secondary students are scheduled to do the same on Wednesday, November 18th. There are many students, however, who have chosen to remain with virtual instruction. Those students may continue to pick up free meals on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Pickup remains at the Quakertown Community High School bus loop from 11:15 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

In addition, the United States Department of Agriculture has extended a nationwide waiver to allow the Quakertown Community School District to provide FREE meals to ALL students regardless of need through the end of the 2020-21 school year, or until available federal funding runs out. No qualification or identification is needed.
