Pick Up Weekly Youth Meal Boxes at 6 Sites

Free meal boxes available for pickup Wednesdays at Cal Young, Kennedy, Madison, Monroe, Roosevelt, Spencer Butte middle schools

Eugene School District 4J is offering free grab-and-go meal boxes for 4J students and other youth every Wednesday. No application or pre-registration is required.

Meal boxes can be picked up between 12:45–2:15 p.m. on Wednesdays at six middle school sites across the district: Cal Young, Kennedy, Madison, Monroe, Roosevelt and Spencer Butte Middle School.

Meal box pickup is not available at the district’s other two middle schools, Kelly Middle School or Arts & Technology Academy, as of the week of May 10.

Families can pick up meals at any location regardless of where they live or attend school. Families who are not able to pick up a meal box at the scheduled time can email 4jmeals@4j.lane.edu and request to pick up a meal box at the district office or make other arrangements.

The weekly meal box features “heat and eat” meals. Each box contains four days of breakfasts and lunches, plus five dinner meals. Vegetarian, made-without-gluten, and soy milk options are available.

Free meals are provided for all 4J students and all youth up to age 18. There are no application process or income requirements.

Since March 2020, Eugene School District 4J has provided about 1.9 million free nutritious meals to local children and youth. Free meals will be available this summer and throughout the 2021–22 school year, thanks to the extension of a federal program that makes it possible to provide free meals for all students and youth without application requirements.
