Herkimer CSD is expanding its meal program to include two ready-to-heat lunches and two breakfasts for the weekend. The new plan will provide children with enough food to last over the weekend, in addition to the daily meals provided Monday through Friday.
Families visiting Herkimer’s meal distribution sites will receive two breakfasts and two lunches on Thursday (for Thursday and Friday). On Fridays, families will receive two breakfasts and two lunches for Saturday and Sunday.

National School Lunch Hero Day
Friday, May 1, is National School Lunch Hero Day. We want to thank all our school lunch “heroes” who are making this expanded meal distribution possible. From the people working in the kitchen to prepare healthy, delicious meals to our bus drivers and teachers who are helping get food to those who need it — you are all “heroes” in our eyes!
If you would like to thank a School Lunch Hero, you can print out one of these cards or make your own: https://schoolnutrition.org/uploadedFiles/2_Meetings_and_Events/SLHD/SLHD-Cards-2018.pdf
