D. 202, Aramark serve over 2 million free meals during pandemic

District 202 and its food service provider Aramark have served more than 2 million free meals since school buildings closed more than a year ago.

Aramark and District 202 began serving weekly meals in mid-March 2020.

About 2,088,000 meals have been distributed as of May 6, 2021 to District 202-area students 18 years old and younger.

District 202 and Aramark give out a free week’s worth of breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner every Wednesday at four high schools.

At two elementary and two middle schools, District 202 serves a week’s worth of breakfast, lunch, and snacks.

The meals are paid for through the Summer Food Program run by the United State Department of Agriculture, said Assistant Superintendent for Business and Operations Tony Arbogast.

District 202 and Aramark plan to offer the free meals through August 4, 2021.

The free meals also help families who may struggle to put food on their table during the pandemic, Arbogast said.
