Can I take the meal with me or pick up meals for others?

Unfortunately, you cannot. The federal COVID waivers that offered flexibility have expired. Due to the expiration of these waivers, we must revert to the former rules:

  • Students/participants must be present to receive a meal. A parent or neighbor cannot pickup food for a child.
  • Participant must remain onsite when consuming their meal. Food items may not be allowed offsite.
  • Multiple meals will not be served at one meal service.

Can all youth get a free meal?

Yes, all youth 18 years old and younger* regardless of income can eat a free meal at any of the 4J school sites. (*People 19 years and older with a physical or mental disability as defined by the state AND who participate during the school year in a public or private non-profit school program can also get a free meal.)

Where can I find the menu / nutritional information?

School meal menus online: Titan Family Portal For access to weekly menus, select “Check District Menu” & enter “Eugene School District 4J” in the search field. Filter to where you are eating, then use the arrows to rotate to the menu week desired. Hover over any item to see nutrition information or use filters for allergens and dietary restrictions. You may print menus by using the icon in the right corner of the menu page.
