Food for students during closure

The Quakertown Community School District is aware of the increasing financial hardships faced by area families in these challenging times. We encourage QCSD families going through financial difficulties to pick up food for their students.

In addition, in our hopes to feed more students, beginning Monday, April 6, food can be picked up at the main entrances of Pfaff and Richland elementary schools, as well as our central location - the bus loop at Quakertown Community High School.

Additional nutrition resources

Food pickup at the three locations is three days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. On Mondays and Wednesdays, students will be provided with meals for two days. On Friday, they’ll receive food for one day. These meals are provided for free. Breakfast and lunch are included. All meals will be cold service, consisting of cereal, sandwiches, muffins, fruit, milk and juice. We ask that parents bring something to carry the food, a bag or a box, for example.

Because of the Friday, April 10 Good Friday holiday, food pickup for multiple days will be held Thursday, April 9.

Families may pick up food at any of the three schools. Students do not have to be present. If a parent or guardian is unable to attend food pickup, a friend or another family member may do so in their place as long as they have the student’s I.D. number and the name of the school the student attends.

Here’s more information, regarding filling out an application for Free and Reduced meal status:

  • An application can be filled out at any time during the school year.
  • Even if you've already filled out an application (whether approved or denied), you can fill out another application if you've had a change in household income.
  • Online application would be the current method to use due to limited mail receipt
  • Families may contact Stacy Reiss (sreiss@qcsd.org) with questions concerning their free and reduced status or other questions.
