If you have taken advantage of the PORTA Meals Program you will have noted that we have altered the meals from a traditional sack lunch to some that have items that require warming up. We will never send home items that need cooked, that is, raw uncooked items. All items sent home will be precooked and will require some heating if you prefer to eat the meal warm. Below are our recommendations for food heating, storage, etc.
Meal Pick-up Information:
Times and Locations
Oakford Town hall--9am-11:00am
Tallula Park/Grade School--9am-11am
The Meal program will be offered to all PORTA Families with Children under 18 in the household and those meals will be free. Meals will be grab and go and will include a breakfast and lunch in each bag.
Meals will be prepared at PORTA Central and should be picked up there. A drive up grab and go method will be used at PORTA Central. While we prefer that meals are picked up at PORTA Central we also understand that not all families have the ability to travel to the school to gather meals. As such, we will travel to Oakford Town Hall and Tallula Grade School, NSPOA (Jellystone) and Menard Electric and pass out meals according to the schedule above. In special circumstances we will deliver to households if that household will call their school office and ask for specific deliver instructions.
If you would like to participate in the free meal program please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Additionally, the next Homework Pick-up date will be April 14th. Each building will contact parents to inform them of pickup times and locations.
