mobile food programWith the state-mandated shutdown for our students, we wanted to provide you with some community resources, including the schedule for our Child Nutrition lunch program, and how you can help.

 

  • Beginning on Monday, our Child Nutrition buses will be traveling to 11 locations throughout our community to deliver meals to children, ages one - 18. The bus will deliver meals on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
     
    • On Mondays and Wednesdays, students will receive four meals each day, two breakfasts and two lunches.
    • On Fridays, students will receive two meals, one breakfast and one lunch.
    • Our meal distribution sites will be set up in the parking lot or outside of the clubhouses at each location. 
    • Per USDA regulations, children must be present in order for meals to be provided. 
    • Meals will only be given based on the number of children present at time of pickup.
 

Due to USDA regulations, anyone arriving at a school site will need to provide their student ID or we can look them up in our point of sale system by name. The community sites are considered open and student ID information is not required. We are awaiting a waiver from USDA to allow all sites to be open – if this happens, we will not need any ID’s or names. 

We will do our best to meet student nutrition needs, but will have limited alternative meal options. For precautionary and safety reasons, we will have limited staff involved in the process of getting meals out to kids, all meals will be prepackaged before arriving onsite in order to limit personal contact. We will have an entrée substitute available that may be offered as needed. Unfortunately, we will not be able to ensure that all allergies and intolerances are accommodated.
