  • FREE Meals for All PLCS Families
    As Papillion La Vista Community Schools is closed during the summer, we want to make sure the needs of all of our families are being met. We are pleased to announce that FREE breakfast and lunches will be provided for all PLCS families through Monday, August 2, 2021.

    Do You Need FREE Breakfast and Lunch for Your Child(ren)?
    Free meals are open to EVERYONE! PLCS is offering weekly curbside pickup for FREE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH for children ages 1-18 through a federal meal program. Meals must be pre-ordered each week. Anyone is eligible to receive free meals. Meal pickups are every Monday through Monday, August 2. 

    How Do I Pre-Order the FREE Meals?
    Orders will be taken each week from Monday at 10:00 a.m. through Thursday at 10:00 a.m. for pick up on the following Monday. Click here to pre-order meals.

    What if I Forget to Pre-Order the Meals?

    • What if I forget to pre-order the meals?
      If you forgot to order your meals and you still want them for the week, you can go to one of the pick up sites on Monday between 9:45 and 10:00 a.m. We cannot guarantee that we will have meals for you, but we will do our best! All preordered meals will be filled first and if there are extras available we will distribute them after 9:45.
    • What if I did not order enough meals?
      You will be able to go back to your order and edit the number of meals you ordered until Thursday at 10:00 a.m. if you save your order confirmation message. After the Thursday deadline, we prepare the number of meals for you that you ordered. When you pickup your order on Monday you will be given the number of meals you ordered. However, you are welcome to return between 9:45 and 10:00 a.m. to see if any additional meals are available if you still need more than you ordered. We cannot guarantee that we will have additional meals for you, but we will try!

    Important Questions & Answers About the Meal Program

    How many meals will I get for each child?
    You will receive one breakfast and one lunch for every weekday for each child. So, on a Monday pickup you will get 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches for each child, along with a menu and food safety instructions.

    What are the requirements to receive free meals?

    • Children must be between the ages of 1-18.
    • Children cannot be receiving free meals from PLCS if they are getting them through another school district.

    Do the meals need to be refrigerated?
    Yes! There are items in the meals that need to be refrigerated right away such as milk. There are also frozen items that you will want to put in the freezer until you are ready to cook them.

    Can someone else pick up meals for my child(ren) if I can’t?
    Yes, just make sure that you enter their name and contact information on the form when you pre-order your meals, so our staff know that it is OK to give them the meals.

    Can I pick up meals for a friend’s children at the same time I pick up for my children?
    Yes, just make sure you include their children in the total number of meals you order on the form. You can place one order for both families for a single pickup.

    My children don’t go to school at PLCS. Can I still pick up meals for them?
    All children ages 1-18 are eligible for FREE meals in PLCS if they are not receiving the meals through another school district.
