This program is funded by the NSLP (National School Lunch Program, under the USDA), which funds meals for children between 1 – 18 years. Each box provides breakfast and lunch for days that Jewish schools are in session, based on the school calendar of Lubavitch Hebrew Academy of Margate which is our sponsor school.
Anyone with children aged between 1 and 18 years old. (See exception below)
This program is not intended for children who receive lunches via SBP, NSLP or CCFP.

No, anyone with children at home - aged between 1 and 18 years old - qualifies.
Yes, every registrant receives a confirmation email with updated driving instructions and text messages with any changes. Registering each week puts you on the list to receive up-to-date information and allows the caterer to have an accurate estimate of numbers.
Subscribers receive a weekly email with a link to register. You will sometimes receive a reminder email but we recommend that you put it in your calendar.
We usually have between 4-11 distribution locations. This is subject to change weekly.
Simply drive to the location, follow directions given by any attendees, and display your paper (see below) at driver window (with family name, as put in registration link, and number of children between 1 – 18 years). Make sure trunk is unlocked or opened when you get to the front. Do not get out of your vehicle – attendees will put your box/es into your car.
A regular sized paper with your family name (as put in registration link) and number of children between 1 – 18 years, written clearly. This should be displayed at front window by distribution.
Our emails sometimes end up in other folders, as often happens with mass email programs. Check your updates, promotions and spam folders. You can also try putting ‘Florida kosher meals’ in your search bar.
If this does not work, re-subscribe using the link found on the home page.
The boxes usually contain some milk, dairy products, dips, canned goods, fresh produce, frozen meals, baked goods and snacks. (Please note that at some locations, milk is an optional addition.)
Unfortunately, not. We use registration numbers to approximate quantities for the orders and we would not be able to confirm them before opening and closing registration. Orders are also subject to supplier availability.
It is best to avoid this but if you can not make it to your original selection, then changing should be fine.
Unfortunately, not. This program works on a first come, first served basis. Always try to get in earlier to ensure your box.
You can still pick up your box but be aware that in the case that there are last minute changes regarding timing/location etc, you will not have received the updates.
Registration gets closed over Shabbat and Festivals. It will usually be reopened by the following morning.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Feedback is always welcome but please be aware that this is a large scale operation that must strictly adhere to USDA mandates, meaning that much of how the program is run, is based directly off their protocol, including what goes into the boxes.
We recommend trying to donate it. There are many foodbanks that appreciate donations.
