This year, our meals will be provided by a new vendor, Preferred Meals! Our staff sampled the meals this summer and we were incredibly impressed. We know that our scholars will thoroughly enjoy the meal options that are available.   

HOW TO ACCESS THE MEALS

School Based

Meal Kits are being provided for a 5 day period, and will be distributed every Friday from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. Meals will be served frozen and shelf stable with detailed instructions on what goes together and how to reheat/prepare them. The meals are then to be consumed from Monday-Friday of the next week and then the next week’s kit will be picked up on the following Friday.

Meal Kits may only be picked up by enrolled scholars or an authorized parent/guardian on the blacktop area of the parking lot. Food service staff will be present to keep a record of what meals have been picked up and by whom. Meals will be distributed to the scholar OR the parent/guardian that is listed as the primary contact. If an additional person who is not your scholars’ parent/guardian of record needs to pick up meals for your scholar, please email our Kitchen Manager, Ms. Metri at tiroegbu@dcscholars.org by 4pm on the Thursday proceeding the pickup day.
