Student Meals Pick Up – Seattle Public Schools

Seattle Public Schools has 26 schools that are serving as a hub for student meal support during the closure. These schools provide sack lunches prepared by our central kitchen for all Seattle Public Schools students Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., for the duration of the school closure. Find information about how to pick up foods and maps of school sites (in 6 languages):

  • School site locations and specific directions for each sites.
  • All students can pick up meals at these sites.
  • Parents, and guardians may pick up meals for students. Students do not need to be in attendance.
  • If an adult is delivering to non-family members in the community and needs more than 10 meals, they should have an agency badge, be Seattle Public Schools staff, or provide evidence that they are vouched for by Seattle Public Schools staff.
