What are Grab & Go Meals?

  • Free premade meals for ages 18 and younger (through June 2021)
  • These sacks contain both breakfast and lunch
  • Starting November 2nd, dinner will be added to the sacks
  • Meals prepared by the David Douglas School District kitchen staff 
  • You can walk or drive to any of these locations
  • Grab and Go Meals are the safest way to provide food for our students during the COVID19 pandemic closures, and online learning.

  • Bus Stop sites: 11:50 AM – 12:50 PM (buses parked at each location)

What is a School Food Pantry?
  • A food pantry is a location where families can get FREE groceries, NOT grab and go meals
  • Most of the school food pantries available in our district are NOT “pick and choose” groceries. They are prepackaged bags filled with available groceries.
  • Available groceries subject to change weekly
  • Families can walk or drive to any of the school food pantries available
  • Due to increased need, there is a possibility that the food pantries might run out of food before the end of the food distribution time. HOWEVER, families can visit any food pantry available within our district or outside the district
    • For a list of food pantries and other programs available, you can visit Oregon Food Bank
  • Food pantries are coordinated through community partner agencies, Oregon Food Bank and Urban Gleaners. David Douglas only serves as a distribution location
