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 served millions of grab-and-go meals to families. We are committed to providing meals throughout the closure, and you can pick up meals at more than 270 schools, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

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

Summer Meal Programs

Through the Summer Food Service Program, CPS will continue to offer a variety of nutritious meals to anyone age 18 and younger throughout the summer. Meal kits containing 3 breakfasts and 3 lunches will be available at over 270 locations throughout the city. Children do not need to be present and families can take meal kits home. The summer meal distribution schedule is Monday-Friday, 9:00am-1:00pm from June 22nd-August 28th.
