Meals for Students
Beginning August 24 and continuing through the entire 2020-2021 school year, all students throughout the district will have access to free breakfast and lunch.
If your family has specific needs concerning mobility or illness, please contact your building's School Community Resource Specialist. Additional community resources are also available.
NKC Schools pledges to serve as Champions for All Students. Should you have an additional need during this time, please start by contacting your building principal or reach out to us via our Let's Talk system.
Families should still apply for the free and reduced price meal program to ensure discounts on for other programs, including testing. A new free and reduced price meals application must be completed each year. Apply for free or reduced price meals here: https://frapps.horizonsolana.com/NORK01. More information is available here.
As our secondary students begin attending five days per week on March 22, daily meal pick up at the high schools will be discontinued, as those staff members and resources will be dedicated to providing school meals to a greater number of students attending on site. Weekly meal kit pick up will still be available. Read more below!
Weekly Meal Kits
NKC Schools is excited to offer weekly meal kits! See the flyer for more information. Meal kits will include five breakfasts and five lunches for pick up at one time. This option is available to all families, and meals are free for all children ages 1-18. Weekly meal kit pick up will be available at each high school on Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. when school is in session. Meal kit pick up will cease on holidays, breaks in the school calendar, inclement weather days, and non-school days.

Feed Northland Kids Community Food Kit Program
Beginning on Wednesday, October 7, and continuing each Wednesday for the next several months, Feed Northland Kids is offering a full grocery bag of shelf-stable food topped with a loaf of fresh bread to our district families to help combat the economic impacts of COVID-19. Fresh produce will also be provided while supplies last.
Please pick up your Community Food Kit at either Winnetonka High School (5815 NE 48th St.) or the northwest corner of the Norclay Building (just west of North Kansas City High School; 620 E 23 Ave). Signs will direct you to the pickup locations. Please be prepared to provide your student’s ID number.
Pickup is each Wednesday from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm. Though it is greatly preferred that families pick up food at one of the two sites, limited delivery may be available for those without transportation or who are unable to pick up food at the designated time. If you would like to request delivery, please click here.
Spring Break: Feed Northland Kids' community food kit program will continue to be offered during NKC Schools' Spring Break on Wednesday, March 31.
