Lunch Information

Welcome back to School Lunch!

Lunch Program Logo: healthy food in the shape of a heart
For those of you who have had children in the Holliston Public Schools in prior years, you are (hopefully) familiar with my monthly emails that I send with my menus. Well, as much as things change, things stay the same. While we are continuing to serve a nutritious & delicious lunch to our students, we have a few new programs to announce:
  • First and foremost, the USDA has extended a waiver that allows us to offer a FREE lunch to all students without going through our application process. This waiver, for now, expires on December 31st.
  • We will continue to offer grab & go lunch pick up for our remote students from the Linden St. loop at the Robert Adams Middle School on Monday & Wednesday from 1:30 - 2:00. Students will be given 2 lunches on Monday and 3 on Wednesday, free to all students. Your child does not need to be present when picking up lunch. We do ask however, if you are planning on participating in remote pick up, that you complete this Remote Lunch Order weekly so we know how many lunches to prepare.
Here are our plans for in person feeding; again as of now!

Placentino and Miller students will have FREE lunch delivered to their classroom daily. Teachers, when taking attendance, will take a lunch count and a complete bagged cold lunch will be delivered to their classroom. Parents do not need to pre-order but you must communicate to your child as to whether or not they are to be ordering lunch that day.

High School & RAMS students will have the opportunity to pick up a FREE cold take out lunch from the cafeteria prior to leaving school. Lunches will be bagged and ready to go so your child can continue to quickly leave the building.

We are excited to welcome your students, our customers back to school.

As everyone has been asking since March, please be patient as we navigate this new service model. I love this quote by the Persian poet Saadi Shirazi "Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy." Let us make lunch easy for you.
