CPS Meal Sites

The health and wellbeing of our students and staff is always our top priority. Since the temporary closure of our schools due to COVID-19, Chicago Public Schools (CPS) has provided millions of grab-and-go meals to families, and we are committed to providing meals during spring break and until CPS schools reopen. To provide our families with the most consistent services while picking up grab-and-go meals during the closure and to better support school staff, food distribution sites will be changing beginning Monday, April 6.

During the district’s scheduled spring break, which begins Monday, April 6, families may pick up grab-and-go meals at 136 school sites across the city from Monday - Thursday, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. Please note that meal sites will not be open on Friday, April 10 to give our staff members time off for Good Friday, and we ask families to plan accordingly.

There may be times when the district needs to change available meal sites. These changes may happen for several reasons:

  • Community needs for nutrition support may change
  • Sites may merge to cover unexpected staffing demands or absences
  • A school may need to undergo special cleaning or repairs
  • Equipment may need to be serviced or replaced
  • A school may need to undergo a COVID-19 or other public health investigation

Please visit the CPS Grab-and-Go Meal Site Finder to locate a meal site nearest you.
