Pequot Lakes School offers meal pickup on four Mondays in June


Though the last day of meal deliveries for the Pequot Lakes School year was Thursday, May 28, which was the last scheduled day of school, the current state waiver for the meals program continues through the fourth week of June.

Therefore, meals are being offered for pick up only, between 9-10 a.m. at the high school main entrance Mondays, June 8, 15 and 22. This option started Monday, June 1.

The meals are packaged so that each child receives one bag with five breakfasts and one bag with five lunches Monday mornings with milk or juice available as an option.

To sign up to pick up meals for children in your household who are age 18 and under, call Patty in the Food Service office at 218-568-9363 or email . When leaving a message, the only information needed is your name, the number of children age 18 and under in your household and a phone number.
