Food Service -- Meals to Go

Last Updated: 1/23/2021 12:57 AM

Butler Area School District is able to offer free meals (breakfast and lunch) to all students and all children age 18 and younger for the 2020-2021 school year. Families are able to register any BASD student or child (18 and younger) who resides in the Butler Area School District for free breakfast and lunch while students are learning remotely for any reason.

Who is eligible?

Whether your child is enrolled in the BASD Cyber Learning Program, their BASD school is temporarily learning remotely, they must quarantine at home, they attend private school or they are not yet school age, we would be happy to provide him/her with breakfast and lunch for free!

Please note: Children are only eligible for meal pick up when they are not at one of our BASD schools. When you child is learning in person at school, he or she may receive free meals there. If your child will be remote for part of the week and at school for part of the week (the secondary cohort model, for example), you can still order meals for when your child is learning remotely. 

When should I sign up?

In order to ensure we are preparing enough meals for everyone without too much excess, we would appreciate if families would sign up each week by Sunday at 5 pm. However, we realize unforeseen circumstances may require a student, family or entire school to shift to remote learning without much notice. In that case, your child will still be eligible to receive meals. For now, please contact Helen Walker directly at 724-214-3223 or helen_walker@butler.k12.pa.us to make arrangements. 

Where and when do I pick up my child's meals?

For the week of January 25, meals may be picked up at any BASD school between 11 am and 1 pm on Tuesday, Jan. 26 and Friday, Jan. 29.

Families will receive multiple meals each time they pick up.

To ensure we have enough meals prepared for all children who need them, please sign up each week by Sunday at 5 pm. Click to sign up

What about delivery?

Delivery is only a possibility when the entire district is in remote instruction. Please plan to pick up your child's meals each week. If delivery becomes an option, we will let families know.

Questions?

If you are unsure how to sign up for food service, please reach out to Helen Walker at 724-214-3223 or helen_walker@butler.k12.pa.us.
