Fargo Public Schools wants to ensure that all students have access to meals during the school year regardless if they are learning in-person or through distance learning.
The Nutrition Services Department is providing a meal pick up service for students when they are distance learning, both in Level 3 - Hybrid Instruction and Virtual Academy. These meals are currently being provided at no cost. Breakfast and lunch can be ordered for each day of distance learning for a one-week period.

Meals for students during distance learning may be picked up by the student or a parent/guardian. Further instructions will be emailed and/or posted at the pickup location. The student receiving the meal will be recorded by staff at the time of pickup.
Virtual Academy students can pick up meals on Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at North High, South High, and Davies High Schools.

School meals are essential to student health and well-being. They ensure that students have the nutrition they need throughout the day to learn.
