Meals for Students

  • NKC Schools Food & Nutrition Services LogoAll families throughout the district will have access to free breakfast and lunch for all students ages 18 and younger. Meals will be available Monday through Friday.

    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. Unfortunately, NKC Schools cannot guarantee allergen-free meals, nor provide substitutions given limited resources. 

    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

Summer Meal Distribution

  • Update (May 18, 2020): There will be no meal distribution service on Memorial Day (Monday, May 25). Additionally, beginning Tuesday, May 26, the grab and go location at Antioch Middle School will be moved to Chapel Hill Elementary (3220 N.E. 67th Terrace, Gladstone, Missouri 64119) due to planned summer maintenance projects. Meal distribution will continue through Friday, June 26.

    Updated Meal Services Flyer Image Immediately upon facing building closures due to the spread of the coronavirus, NKC Schools implemented a comprehensive plan for families to access food. Planning for any possible scenario, multiple distribution phases were outlined to continue providing this much-needed resource. As more school districts report incidents of food distribution workers contracting COVID-19, NKC Schools collaborated with the Clay County Health Department to determine the right time to shift to Phase 2 of our plan. The decision has been made that on Monday, April 13, district buses will no longer be used to deliver meals to stops throughout our community. Food distribution will now be increased from four to 12 school sites located throughout our attendance area. Local health officials advise this change in our service model will help slow the spread of the coronavirus. NKC Schools remains steadfast in our resolve to provide food to those in need.

    The following sites are designated as “grab-n-go” food pick up locations every Monday through Friday between 10 a.m.–1 p.m. This is an extension of the previous timeframe. No changes will be made to food distribution for families with unique needs and extenuating circumstances. Should you have need for such an accommodation, please contact your school’s School Community Resource Specialist. Limited delivery efforts will continue in high need areas, as well.


    Update (April 9, 2020): Today’s announcement from Gov. Michael Parson announcing the closure of Missouri schools through the end of the year does not affect our meal distribution plans. Services will continue as planned, with the shift to expanded pick up sites beginning on Monday, April 13.
