EUGENE, Ore. – Eugene School District 4J will be offering free meals for all students for the 2021-2022 school year.

The meals will be provided at no cost to all students, regardless of their family income, who attend on-site classes. District officials say it’s made possible due to the extension of a federal program.

Schools will be providing breakfast and lunch, as well as dinner during some after-school programs.

Students who are enrolled in online learning can sign up to get weekly meal boxes. Vegetarian, gluten-free and soy milk options are available.

Reserved boxes can be picked up on Wednesdays at the 4J Education Center, 200 N. Monroe St. On Thursdays, any remaining boxes can be picked up as supplies last for families who have not reserved one.

The district has reportedly provided more than 2 million free meals to area students between March 2020 and now.

Families can reserve meal boxes HERE.
