Pick-up and bus delivery times change for summer food program

Jul 07 2020

Beginning July 8, 2020, the hours of service for the summer food service program will change. To protect our staff and families from the heat and better manage traffic, the drive-through pick-up will take place from 8:30 a.m.–11:00 a.m. on Wednesdays. Thanks to the USDA Farmers to Families Food Box program, 20-pound boxes of produce from Senn Brothers are available to families on a first-come, first-served basis. Supplies are limited.

The following schools are designated as “grab and go” sites: Carolina Springs Middle; Forts Pond Elementary; Gilbert Middle; Rosenwald Community Learning Center; and Saxe Gotha Elementary. Food Services implemented new traffic patterns for GHS, RCLC and SGE to improve flow; watch for signage at those sites.

The bus drop-off times will also change to the morning hours. Click here to view those locations and times.

As a reminder, the program offers free food for children 18 years of age and younger, as well as students with disabilities up to age 21. Parents/guardians can have the children in the car or, if they do not have the children with them, they need to present some form of valid identification for each child such as a school identification card, passport or government-issued identification card. The parent/guardian also needs to bring a form of identification that proves his/her relationship to the child, such as an adoption decree, birth certificate, daycare record or doctor/hospital record.
