School Lunch Provided During Closure
We understand the acute needs of our families who rely on healthy meals provided at school daily. In light of that, Linn-Mar Community School District will be providing school lunch for all children and teens 18 and younger each weekday (Monday-Friday) from March 23 through the end of the school year. District employees and volunteers will be setting up grab-and-go lunch to let students and families pick up meals. These meals will be distributed at no charge. Seven sites will serve as meal pick up locations for families, along with three meal delivery locations.
