03 Apr Making sure our kids get healthy meals in this time of need

Clark County School District has been working diligently to provide healthy meals to students during the unprecedented school closures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

As of Wednesday, since the current school closure, over 580,000 meals have been distributed to more than 290,000 children. Click here to get more information about the distribution of healthy meals to students, including a list of food distribution sites.

As this work is critical, and to ensure students continue receiving meals, CCSD will be keeping its 36 meal distribution sites open during the upcoming Spring Break scheduled from April 6, 2020 to April 10, 2020.

One important change to note, starting April 6, CCSD’s food distribution sites will be serving meals at a new time from 9 a.m. until noon. This new time will apply even after Spring Break.

“I’ve seen demand for meals first hand at the distribution sites as I participated in a mobile distribution site recently providing meals to our students at various sites around town,” Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara says. “It reinforced how critical it is to provide food to families with limited transportation options.”

With that in mind, CCSD will also begin limited mobility food distribution at 10 additional school sites starting April 6 with various days and times. Click here to see locations and times.

As a demonstration of these efforts working with community partners, Clark County School District Board of School Trustees President Lola Brooks and Dr. Jara recently delivered meals and Pinkbox doughnuts to students at the Siegel Suites Cambridge, Siegel Suites Boulder I and Siegel Suites Boulder 2.
