Families approved for District Assistance also qualify for further support from our donation partners.

New Trier Township (separate from the school district) also offers qualifying residents services in the areas of financial assistance, food pantry, transportation services and more. To inquire, visit or call 847-446-8202

Breakfast/Lunch Pick-Up

In an effort to ensure our students who qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch have access to meals during this time of remote learning, New Trier High School in partnership with Quest Food Services is making brown bag breakfast/lunch available for pick up twice a week. Every Tuesday and Thursday until school is back in session for the 2019-20 school year, meals will be available for pick up at the Winnetka Campus Cafeteria (Trevian Way entrance) from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. You may pick up three days of food during each visit.

In addition, the Illinois Department of Health (DHS) has expanded its approval for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. A family of 4 earning less than $42,000 per year may qualify for up to $640 per month in SNAP benefits under new state income guidelines. Please visit to apply.
