The last day for food distribution at District 47 schools is Wed., May 27 from 8am to 10am.
To continue to meet the needs of our families over the summer months, we wanted to make you aware of the free summer lunch program in Crystal Lake. If you have been participating in District 47’s food distribution program, you should have received a flyer about it this week during meal pick-up. Please take the brief survey attached to this flyer and return it to the school during your next food pick-up, as it will help the program’s organizers determine how many meals are needed.
Sponsored by the Northern Illinois Food Bank, the summer lunch program provides free boxed lunches to any child in Crystal Lake 18 years of age and younger. The program is led by volunteers and supported by the Crystal Lake Park District and Vineyard Church.
The summer lunch program will be offered Monday through Friday starting Monday, June 1, 2020 and ending Friday, August 14, 2020. Lunch will be served from 11am to 1pm at Ladd Park, 521 Coventry Lane in Crystal Lake. In case of rain, lunches will be served at Vineyard Church, 7105 Virginia Road in Crystal Lake (next to the CVS). No registration is required. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, food will be distributed as a drive-up service. In addition, volunteers will follow health department and CDC social distancing guidelines and wear face coverings.
Last summer, the free lunch program in Crystal Lake served approximately 1,665 meals and fed approximately 33 children per day. The program aims to fill a void in the summer months when school is not in session and lunch is not provided to qualifying children through the National School Lunch Program.
Northern Illinois Food Bank’s Summer Meal Program is offered in partnership with the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program and is administered by the Illinois State Board of Education.

Estimado padre o tutor de D47:
El último día para la distribución de alimentos en las escuelas del Distrito 47 es el miércoles 27 de mayo de 8 a 10 de la mañana.
Para continuar satisfaciendo las necesidades de nuestras familias durante los meses de verano, queríamos informarles del programa de almuerzo gratis de verano en Crystal Lake. Si han participado en el programa de distribución de alimentos del Distrito 47, debieron recibir un volante al respecto esta semana durante la recogida de la comida. Por favor, rellenen la breve encuesta adjunta a este volante y devuélvanlo a la escuela durante su próxima recogida de alimentos, ya que ayudará a los organizadores del programa a determinar cuántas comidas se necesitan.
Patrocinado por el Northern Illinois Food Bank, el programa de almuerzos de verano proporciona almuerzos gratuitos en caja a cualquier niño de Crystal Lake de 18 años o menor. El programa es dirigido por voluntarios y apoyado por el Crystal Lake Park District y la Vineyard Church.
El programa de almuerzo de verano se ofrecerá de lunes a viernes desde el lunes 1 de junio de 2020 hasta el viernes 14 de agosto de 2020. El almuerzo se servirá de 11 a.m. a 1 p.m. en Ladd Park, 521 Coventry Lane en Crystal Lake. En caso de lluvia, los almuerzos se servirán en Vineyard Church, 7105 Virginia Road en Crystal Lake (junto al CVS). No es necesario registrarse. Debido a la pandemia de COVID-19, la comida será distribuida como un servicio de transporte. Además, los voluntarios seguirán las pautas de distanciamiento social del departamento de salud y de los CDC y llevarán cubiertas sus caras.
El verano pasado, el programa de almuerzo gratis en Crystal Lake sirvió aproximadamente 1,665 comidas y alimentó aproximadamente 33 niños por día. El programa tiene como objetivo llenar un vacío en los meses de verano, cuando la escuela no está en sesión y no se proporciona el almuerzo a los niños que califican a través del Programa Nacional de Almuerzos Escolares.
