Door-to-Door Meal Delivery

The Stoughton Area School District can now serve meals to children at no charge and seven days a week.  A waiver has been released by the Department of Public Instruction and the National School Lunch Program, that allows us to provide these meals at no charge.

Effective September 8, 2020 all children aged 18 and under and students aged 19-21 who have not yet graduated are eligible to receive free daily meals regardless of free & reduced meal status.  Approvals may take up to two weeks.

Twice-weekly meal deliveries

Deliveries will be made on Tuesday and Thursday between approximately 11am and 12pm.  The meal days included in those deliveries have been adjusted slightly to accommodate weekend meals:

  • Tuesday delivery will include: Lunch for Tuesday; breakfast and lunch for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

  • Thursday delivery will include: Breakfast and lunch for Saturday, Sunday, Monday and breakfast for Tuesday

Already receiving meals?

  • Effective September 4, you will no longer be charged for meals.

  • Effective September 15, families currently receiving just lunch will also receive breakfast.

Estimate of meals costs by week / month / year


Free and Reduced Meals

Free and reduced meals are noticed annually via email or on paper and are available in all building offices throughout the year.  Applications may also be submitted electronically via your Infinite Campus Parent Portal.   

English          Spanish          Albanian

Applications may be submitted at any time during the year as financial situations change. Submission and status of applications are confidential.

Households approved for free and reduced meals, via application, must reapply each year. Note: Federal income guidelines change annually. So, while your income may have remained the same, the guideline has changed causing your approval status to be different.

Households automatically approved for free or reduced meals via the Direct Certification Program will receive a letter home in late July.  If you receive this letter you DO NOT have to submit an application.


Family Accounts and Automatic Replenishment**By using both of the options below you should never have to worry about your student not having funds available. 

Family Accounts:  You may choose to combine all students into one account.  This means, one reminder, one payment for all of your children.  Please contact Jenny McKenna at Jenny.McKenna@stoughton.k12.wi.us if you would like to create a family account.
 
Automatic Replenishment : You may set up an automatic replenishment at a minimum balance or on specific days of the month.  Option 2 is great for our dual household students!  Please go to your Infinite Campus Parent Portal.   Click here for directions.
