FPS Summer Meals Extended

Fargo Public Schools has extended the free grab and go meals to all children on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays through Friday, July 31 as part of a summer meal schedule. Note: there will be NO meal distribution on Friday, July 3 in observation of Independence Day. Meals will be provided using a drive-through or walk-up meal pick-up process. There will be no distribution on Tuesday or Thursday as meals on Monday will include two days and Wednesday will include three meals.  Breakfast and lunch meals for Saturday and Sunday will be provided at Friday’s meal pickup. 


Free meals will be available for any child up to the age of 18 (up to 21 if receiving special education services). The free meal distribution will be solely for the pick-up of meals; meals will not be consumed at the site. Families may go to any location to receive a meal and are asked to watch for the yellow school bus.


Children do not need to be present to receive a meal as long as an approved form of identification is presented at the meal pick-up site.  Approved forms of identification are:

  • K-12 Student ID card from any school/school district
  • A bus bag tag from any K-12 school/school district
  • Student’s name or lunch account/Student ID number (subject to verification at time of pick-up)
