Lincoln County School District Meal Service Changes Effective May 3, 2021
Unfortunately, due to a staffing shortage, Lincoln County School District is unable to continue the weekend meals program we have been providing during hybrid learning.
Weekend meals will be suspended until further notice.
We still have options to help students fill the gap including the district emergency food pantry and/or backpack programs. Information is available at your child’s school.
If you would like to help us restore the weekend meal program by joining our amazing team, please call the Nutrition Services office at 541-336-2156. Positions are available in all areas of the County. Come make a difference!
Did you know that breakfast and lunch are served to all of our students at no charge? In addition, under the current Covid-19 waivers, we are able to offer take home suppers at no charge as well (just sign up at your school). This will provide all students the opportunity to eat 3 meals a day, 5 days a week if desired. Curbside service is also open to ALL Lincoln County children, ages 1-18, not currently attending a LCSD campus. (see below for details).
All recipes are prepared by a registered dietician and the menus created are constructed to meet all USDA nutritional guidelines set by the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act (HHFKA) of 2010. A variety of fresh and canned fruits and vegetables are offered daily and students can return for as many seconds of these daily offerings as they choose.
Oregon introduced the Farm to School Network to School Districts just a few short years ago, allowing additional funding to purchase directly from local farmers and vendors. All products must be grown and/or processed in the state of Oregon. Lincoln County has successfully partnered with many farmers, fisheries, and vendors over the years and put these items in our daily service. If you are interested in becoming a partner, please contact the Nutrition Services Department for details or visit http://www.farmtoschool.org/our-network/Oregon.
Many of our K-8 schools qualify for the Fresh Fruit & Vegetable program which allows for a tasting or snack of items they would not always experience, such as Dragon Fruit, Kiwi Berries, or Rainbow Carrots. Ask your child what they had for a snack today! To learn more, go to: https://www.fns.usda.gov/ffvp/fresh-fruit-and-vegetable-program.
Over the summer months, LCSD plans to offer a curbside offering in each area of breakfast & lunch (also free) to all children ages 1-18, meals will also be provided for all Summer School Programs. Watch for communication on sites and times in June.

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day!
Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for many families to find time for a healthy breakfast. However, US Department of Agriculture data shows, that an increasing number of students are starting their day with a nutritious breakfast in their school cafeterias. The School Breakfast Program currently serves more than 14 million students every day. Studies show that students who eat school breakfast are more likely to:
- Reach higher levels of achievement in math
- Score higher on standardized tests
- Have better concentration, memory, and alertness
- Have improved attendance, behavior, and academic performance
- Maintain a healthy weight
Encourage your student to have breakfast and start the day out right!
