The South Park School District’s food services department continues to offer free meals to all students.

Families with students enrolled in the South Park Cyber Academy are now able to register for a meal bag pickup for April. These bags will include lunch meals, breakfast meals, fruits, vegetables and milk. The pickup will be scheduled for Wednesdays in April from 1 to 2 p.m. at the existing location outside South Park High School. View a map hereThe Wednesday meal bag pickup is only for students enrolled in the South Park Cyber Academy. In-person students are not eligible. Additionally, families must register for meals for the week using this form by noon on Tuesday. Bags will not be available for those who did not register. Contact Brandon Smoker by emailing brandon.smoker@sparksd.org or by calling (412) 655-4189 if you need to arrange an alternate pickup time.

The existing Friday meal pickup will continue for all students - those enrolled in in-person learning and those enrolled in the South Park Cyber Academy - from 11 a.m. to noon outside South Park High School. View a map here. The Friday meal pickups for the remainder of April are scheduled for:

Friday, April 9 from 11 a.m. to noon

Friday, April 16 from 11 a.m. to noon

Friday, April 23 from 11 a.m. to noon

Friday, April 30 from 11 a.m. to noon

Families MUST register for the Friday meal distribution by completing this online form by 3 p.m. the Thursday before the pickup. All families picking up a meal must have registered in advance. This helps our food services department adequately prepare for that day’s distribution. 

Students who are attending in-person classes in a South Park school are able to receive one (1) free breakfast and one (1) free lunch each school day from the school cafeteria. Only one (1) lunch is free per day.

All meals provided will follow the National School Lunch Program guidelines. This free-meal waiver only applies to complete meals. Students will be required to pay for any a la carte purchases made in our school cafeterias.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Brandon Smoker, food services director, by emailing brandon.smoker@sparksd.org or by calling (412) 655-4189.
