Food Service /Locations - Updated 3/31/2020

Starting Tuesday, March 24, we will offer curbside breakfast and lunch to any child age 18 and younger Monday through Thursday.  Friday's meal will still be available but will be delivered with Thursday's meal.   A student does not need to attend school at the distribution location to get meals. Students must be present to receive a meal. Due to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) rules, we can only distribute meals to students when they’re on site. We are hoping the USDA relaxes these rules to make it easier to provide these meals in the future.
