Free Meals for Kids

VCS School Nutrition will be providing families with an opportunity to obtain 10 free "take and bake" meals per child daily for children ages 18 and under. This program is an essential service and families are allowed to leave home to participate.

Our Free Meals for Kids Program has been moved to Valparaiso High School every Friday from 11:00-1:00 beginning this Friday, April 10, 2020 to accommodate more families in need. 

These meals are available on Fridays from 11:00 A.M.-1 P.M. at Valparaiso High School. Vehicles must enter the VHS parking lot through the Vale Park Road entrance only. Please review the traffic map linked here: Meal Distribution Traffic Map April 2020

The Backpacks and Snacks Program weekend meals for participating families will also be available for pickup on Fridays at the same time and location.
