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.

Note from the FCSD #2 Food Service Director

The goal of the federal school meal program is to ensure that children do not go hungry and have access to nutritious meals that support healthy growth and development.

For the last two years, we have been fortunate to experience free school meals for breakfast and lunch. Those waivers are no longer active. Unless you are approved for free or reduced meals, your family will be paying full price for school meals this year. For a family with two or more children enrolled in school, eating breakfast and lunch, imagine the savings for the school year.

Please take a moment to complete an application for free/reduced meal benefits. In addition to benefiting families and children, increasing participation in the program helps secure the financial stability of the school meal program. Federal reimbursement is provided based on the number of free, reduced price, and paid meals served.

As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have. Thank you for your cooperation!

    Ram Pak Program

    The Community Food Bank in Dubois offers weekend supplemental food that we distribute to students in need in grades kindergarten through eight. This age range is new for the 2022–2023 school year.

    The Community Food Bank of St. Thomas Church here in Dubois packs individual serving sizes of food, selected for both nutrition and child appeal, into “Ram Paks”. We distribute the paks on the last school day of the week. Students take the paks home to supplement their nutritional needs over the weekend.

    Please encourage your child to bring the paks home and to consume the contents of the paks. We do not want to see waste happening in this generous program.

    If you believe that your child could benefit from this program, we encourage you to sign up. Please complete the required RamPack Food Program Consent Form, and return it to Nurse Hinkle. Forms are available outside of the school office and online.

    The program begins approximately the week after school starts and runs until the week before school ends. Each family needs only one form per family. The information you provide is confidential and only the school nurse will view the information.

    If you have any questions, please contact Anna Hinkle, district nurse and Food Service director.
