Free meals available 3:30-5:30 p.m. Mondays, 8:30-11:30 a.m. Wednesdays

CCSD 89 has expanded the lunch pickup times on Wednesdays. All CCSD 89 families can pick up a week’s worth of free breakfasts and lunches at all five schools.

Meals will now be available from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Mondays, or 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesdays. 

Families will be able to pick up five free lunches and five free breakfasts at any of the CCSD 89 elementary schools or at Glen Crest Middle School, 725 Sheehan Avenue, Glen Ellyn. Families can go to whichever school is most convenient for them.

When Monday is a holiday, the meals will be available to pick up on Tuesday.

Families can drive up to the school and receive meals while still in their car. Staff distributing the meals will be masked.

Families can pick up meals for every child in their house 18 years old or younger. If your child is older than 18 and enrolled in special education, they can also receive the meals. These lunches are open to all families, not just those who receive free and reduced lunch.

Children do not need to be present to pick up the meal. Families cannot pick up meals for friends or neighbors. All the meals meet the USDA guidelines for school lunches. Meals will be available throughout the school year.

If you have questions about the meal program, contact Lauren Parker at or (630) 469-8900, ext. 3507.
