Our Current Meal Service Plan:

  • We have meal service 3 days each school week - Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays
    • Mondays - 2 breakfast + 2 lunch meals are handed out for each child
    • Wednesdays - 1 breakfast + 1 lunch meal per child
    • Thursdays - 2 breakfast + 2 lunch meals per child

  • Students attending Safe Zone Schools will receive breakfast & lunch at the building

  • We have 11 SCH schools open for curbside to-go meal service from 10:45am to 12:15pm.  Those schools are Edison, Eggers, Franklin, Gavit, Harding, Irving, Lincoln, Maywood, Morton Elementary, O'Bannon, and Scott Middle School

  • We will ALSO have buses running routes out in the community from 10:45am - 12:15pm (think of them like food trucks making stops to pass out breakfast & lunch meal bags) so that if it is too hard to get to a school - we can come closer to you!



Mission Statement:
The School City of Hammond Department of Food and Nutrition provides excellent quality meals, prepared and served in a safe, sanity, and pleasant environment, while reinforcing healthy eating patterns for students, staff, and their families.  

About Us:

  • Our menus are nutritionally analyzed with a software program called Titan to ensure nutritional integrity as well as full compliance with USDA regulations.

  • We are "self-funded" as we generate our own income from USDA meal reimbursement, and pay our own operational expenses, with no reliance on local taxpayers or the school district's general fund.

  • Our school kitchens are inspected twice each year by the Lake County Health Department.  We proudly say that a perfect score is our norm.
