The free meals are available for pick up between 11:00 am and 12:00 Noon in the circle drives at Marshfield High School (1401 E Becker Road) and Lincoln Elementary School (1621 S Felker Ave).

Marshfield Public Schools’ Nutrition Staff will continue to distribute free breakfast and lunch each weekday, Monday through Friday, for students 18 and under beginning March 16th.

Meals cannot be consumed onsite. Students may pick up breakfast and lunch at the same time. Parents and students will not be expected to get out of their vehicle to receive meals. Free meal distribution will continue throughout the school closure period.

Q&A with Staff:

Can parents pick up on behalf of another family and is there a limit?

Student needs to be present, one per student.

Do they have to show district ID?

No ID is needed, available to any student 18 and younger, ruled by the DPI.

Is any food preparation needed?

They are ready to eat food… Like a coldbag lunch (lunch example: cold sandwich, bag of carrots, fresh whole fruit and a milk). We will be handing out a lunch and breakfast at the same time for them to take home.They are ready to eat food… Like a coldbag lunch (lunch example: cold sandwich, bag of carrots, fresh whole fruit and a milk).
