PTS Meals Express

Portage Township Schools Food Service and Transportation departments are proud to offer our PTS Meals Express service! Students who are participating in Virtual Learning may obtain meals at a bus stop near their home from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each Wednesday. Children will receive breakfast and lunch for five days.
 
Children 18 or under not participating in in-person learning (Virtual learners): Students or families may pick up five (5)  days of breakfast and lunches at one of our Meal Express sites each Wednesday. Those picking up meals for a PTS student who is not present for pick-up will need to show a completed PTS Meal Pick-Up Form. Children who are not PTS students may participate but must be present for meal pick-up. Meals will be provided free of charge to children regardless of free, reduced or paid status eligibility.
 
Students participating in in-person learning: Students may receive one breakfast and one lunch each day at school. Meals will be provided free of charge to all students regardless of free, reduced, or paid status eligibility.
 
Students participating in e-learning every Wednesday (PHS): Our high school students may receive one breakfast and one lunch on e-learning Wednesdays at our Meals Express stops. Those picking up meals for a PTS student who is not present for pick-up will need to show a completed PTS Meal Pick-Up Form. Meals will be provided free of charge to students regardless of free, reduced, or paid status eligibility.
