Important Notice: For the duration of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the GRACE school system is offering a Drive-Thru Meal Service program that is free for GRACE students and siblings ages 18 and younger. Online forms need to be filled out each week. They will be shared mid-day on Wednesday of each week (to gauge meal projections for the following week). Please visit www.gracesystem.org/coronavirus for more information.

GRACE is committed to our Food Service mission: “Helping our students be healthy, well-nourished, balanced, confident and ready to achieve academic excellence and life skills, while growing in their Catholic Faith.”

Food Service Director Jamie Hurley, a state-licensed Registered Dietician, and the dedicated Food Service professionals at each of our schools are passionate about providing healthy, student-friendly, nutritious and affordable meals daily.

All GRACE schools using our Food Service program participate in the United States Department of Agriculture’s National School Lunch Program. The program ensures daily nutritional components are met for lunch, provides students and families with additional resources (such as the Free and Reduced Meal Eligibility Program) and provides additional grant funding for our schools.

GRACE Community 5K Wellness Fun Run/Walk

GRACE hosts an annual Community 5K Wellness Fun Run/Walk to promote a healthy and balanced mind, body and spirit while also strengthening our GRACE community of schools and parishes.

The second annual event is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 15, 2020 at 8:30 a.m. The event will start and finish at Father Allouez Catholic School-Resurrection Campus and will include portions of the East River Trail.
