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.

Email josedomenech@sjisd.org or elizabethvarvaro@sjisd.org if you have any questions about the program, or call José at 360-370-7908.
