The Union R-XI School district will provide 10 FREE meals for the entire week to children 18 years

will do our best to support our students and families during COVID-19 school closure. The following
information explains how the meal program will work.

● Each child will receive a total of 10 meals; 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches. These 10 meals should
cover breakfast and lunch for each week day until the next meal distribution the following
