Fremont County School District No. 2

Food Services

At Fremont County School District #2 we recognize the connection between good nutrition and student success. All of our food service staff is dedicated to our students' health, well being, and their ability to learn. 

All meals, foods, and beverages sold or served at schools are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines and meet state and federal requirements. All students have access to well balanced, healthy meals that provide the recommended amounts of nutrients and energy for optimal learning and child development.

Free Meal Program Extended

The USDA has extended the service of free meals to all children 18 and under. FCSD #2 will be serving all enrolled students. This covers a reimbursable breakfast and lunch daily, including seconds. Please remember that you are responsible for any additional milk, juice, or grab-and-go items available that day. This includes muffins, special drinks, granola bars, or other items served at breakfast. Please contact Anna Hinkle L.P.N FCSD #2 School Nurse/Food Service Director.

Ram Pak Program

Fremont County School District #2 and the St. Thomas Community Food Bank of St. Thomas’ Church continues to work together to offer supplemental food for children over weekends and extended breaks. This program is free of charge to all families that request the service.

The contents are high protein, high calorie snack items. This program has no affiliation with the National School Lunch Program and does not meet the nutritional guidelines set by the USDA.

We will distribute paks on Thursdays or the last school day of the week. We will place paks in cubbies or lockers. All students enrolled in FCSD#2 are eligible to receive a Ram Food Pak.

There is no longer an application for this program. Please email Nurse Hinkle to be placed on the list to receive the food pak. Your child or children will be placed on the list.

Please encourage your child to consume all the contents to avoid waste.

If you have questions regarding this program, please contact Anna Hinkle, District Nurse/Food Service Director, at (307) 455-5511.

    USDA Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Program

    Dubois K-5 School has been awarded a Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) USDA Grant for this school year! Beginning in October, our food service staff will be preparing delicious trays of fresh fruits or vegetables for all our K-5 students.

    The goal of the Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program is to:

    • Create healthier school environments by providing healthier food opportunities and education
    • Expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience
    • Increase children’s fruit and vegetable consumption
    • Make a difference in children’s diets to impact their present and future health

     Your child will eat the fresh fruits and vegetables snack in his/her classroom. Along with tasting the fresh fruit or vegetable of the day, your child will be learning fun and educational facts about that day’s fresh fruit or vegetable. Children will be encouraged to try the fruit or vegetable snack of the day, but they may choose to not participate if they do not like or cannot eat the fruit or vegetable offered. Please encourage your child to participate in the snack, as this will show your support of healthy food choices and willingness for your child to try new foods.
