School meals available for distance learners in Fargo



FARGO — Fargo Public Schools will provide meals to students learning both in-person and remotely following the USDA’s school breakfast and lunch programs. These meals will be charged in the same manner as in-school meals, based on the student’s eligibility status for the free and reduced meal program.

Breakfast and lunch can be ordered for each day of distance learning for a one-week period. Meals can be picked up by the student or a parent or guardian. Further instructions will be emailed and/or posted at the pickup location.

Virtual Academy students can pick up meals Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at North, South and Davies high schools. Distance learning students can pick up meals at each school building when school is released. Further details will be provided to these students, as their schedules alternate weekly.

Remote and distance learning meal precautions:

  • Bagged meals are available through preorder for days students are remote learning. Meals will be distributed utilizing physical distancing. Options will be communicated to households weekly.
  • Meals will consist of frozen, refrigerated and shelf-stable foods. Meals will be stored at proper temperatures and will not exceed four hours out of proper temperature during the distribution process.
  • Proper storage and preparation instructions will be provided for bagged meals.
