Important Information from Child Nutrition Department

Important Update form the Child Nutrition Department

As a reminder United States Department of Agriculture has approved the Free breakfast and lunch for all children 18 years and younger. This federally mandated benefit has afforded the child nutrition program the ability to provide two meals (one breakfast and one lunch) a day, seven days, for ALL children in the community through till June 30th.

 As we begin to welcome more students back in to the schools five days a week, and more children return from remote learning, we have opted to adjust the distribution schedule accordingly to better accommodate the learning models while ensuring the federal regulations are being adhered to. 

 This new distribution schedule is effective immediately (following vacation):

 7 day breakfast and lunch bundles will be available Wednesdays for pick-up for ALL remote students and any other child age 18 or under that is NOT attending school in person. 

 2 day breakfast and lunch bundles will be available for pick up on  Fridays to provide meals for Saturday and Sunday for ALL children that are accessing meals while attending school in person.

 Distribution remains at Horace Porter between 9am-9:30am, now on Wednesday and Fridays.

 You are not required to sign up , however completing this survey https://forms.gle/boqf5L84yERHNZxf7 will help the child nutrition department better prepare.
