Free breakfast and lunch program for all students now includes weekend meals

The free meals program available to all school-aged children in the Colonial School District now includes breakfasts and lunches for the weekend. 

  • Families picking up the Meal Packs on Fridays will receive the extra meals automatically.
  • Students in the hybrid schedule can check the box for weekend meals when they order Take Home Meals for the week. 

Reminder: Free meals are available to all students for the full 2020-2021 school year! 


  • Students attending schools in-person during the hybrid schedule may receive free breakfasts and lunches from the cafeteria. You don't need to complete any paperwork to take advantage of this offer. The free meals do not, however, include extras/snacks/a la carte items. Therefore, you may still deposit money into your child's account for these items. We strongly encourage cashless transactions at this time. Click here to add money to your accounts via

  • If you still prefer to pack your child's lunch, please feel free to take advantage of our "Pick 3 and It's Free" program. This means packed meals can be supplemented with a fruit, vegetable and milk from the cafeteria for no charge. Students must select all three components according to federal guidelines in order to receive the items for free.


Colonial will also be offering free Take Home Meals for hybrid learners in addition to free weekly Meal Packs for fully virtual learners.

  • Take Home Meals for hybrid students:
    Hybrid group "A" students can receive Take Home Meals at the end of day Monday for Tuesday, and again on Wednesday for Thursday-Sunday. Hybrid group "B" students can receive Take Home Meals at the end of the day Tuesday for Wednesday, and again on Thursday for Friday-Monday.

  • Meal Packs for full virtual students:
    Fully virtual students may still pick up weekly Meal Packs that include seven days' worth of breakfasts and lunches. The pick up will be moving to Fridays between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., and will only be available at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School.

All Take Home Meals or Meal Packs MUST be pre-ordered in advance.
