The school meal delivery service kicked off Oct. 12 in Eugene. The district is delivering meals to families who are not near a meal pickup location or who need assistance. The meals are being provided every school day during the time all 4J students are learning online. Breakfast and lunch are delivered together and extra meals for the weekend will be provided on Fridays.

Families inside the district boundary with children age 18 or younger qualify for meals. The children do not need to be 4J students, but capacity is limited and students will be given priority.
