San Juan Island School Dis­trict is able to pro­vide a dai­ly meal pack with break­fast and lunch to any child in our com­mu­ni­ty between the ages of 1 and 18 years of age for free until June 18.

These deli­cious high-qual­i­ty meals are from the school dis­tric­t’s excep­tion­al, hard-work­ing, and tal­ent­ed Food For Thought team.

There are two options for lunch and each option also comes with break­fast. They will be bun­dled and picked up at the same time.

Week­ly orders are placed online on the school district’s Food Ser­vice web­page at www.sjisd.wednet.edu/domain/32 and must be turned in by 10 p.m., Sunday.

The order form can be accessed by click­ing on the “Week­ly Meal Order Form” link.

If you can’t order online, call 360–370-7908.

If you miss the Sun­day 10 p.m. dead­line and place an order mid-week, you may default to your sec­ond option due to lim­it­ed supply.

Par­ents or designees can pick up meals on behalf of oth­er chil­dren but must be pre­pared to ver­i­fy the child’s name and age.

Meals are avail­able for every day that school is in ses­sion (includ­ing half days).

Meals can be picked up between 7–8 a.m. at the high school park­ing lot at the STEM Building.

Addi­tion­al pick­up sites and times are:

  • The Oaks from 7:15–7:25 a.m.
  • The cor­ner of West Val­ley Road and Roche Har­bor Road from 7:45–7:55 a.m.
  • The Trail­er Court from 8:05–8:15 a.m.

All CDC, local and state guide­lines are fol­lowed with fideli­ty. All menu items pro­vid­ed can be safe­ly con­sumed with­in two hours, or they must be refrig­er­at­ed. Food is cooked and can be eat­en cold, or reheat­ing instruc­tions can be fol­lowed for increased enjoyment.
