Each remote meal pack contains five breakfasts, five lunches and four weekend snack packs. 

On Wednesdays in December — December 2, 9 and 16 — CPS' Student Dining Services will hand out meal packs at all schools (except Lighthouse and Rising Stars at Cheviot/Westwood).

To help working parents and to accommodate virtual learning times, meal pack distribution will be:
