Dear Echo Park Families:
At Echo Park, we work hard to ensure students receive a healthy breakfast and lunch each day to support their developing brains and bodies. Research shows that children who eat regular, nutritious meals are more likely to attend school and be engaged in learning.
We are excited to collaborate again this year with The Sheridan Story to offer a free weekend food program to all of our students.
The Sheridan Story is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization with a mission to fight child hunger through community and school partnerships. They strive to make a difference in children’s lives by focusing on food gaps like weekends, school breaks, and summer when children cannot receive meals in school.
Register now for fall learning opportunities. As always, the safety of you, your family and our staff is our primary concern.
District 196 students are eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch every school day, whether in school or distance learning at home. A la carte items available at school are not included in this program.
