USD 457

The USD 457 Summer Food Service Grab and Go lunch program will take a scheduled break from July 6 – 9, 2020.  The program is planned to be back on its normal schedule on Monday, July 13, 2020.  The last day that the lunches will be distributed will be on Thursday, July 30, 2020. 

The 2020 Summer Food Service Grab and Go lunch program will take place at a number of schools in the district Monday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.  The schools include: Abe Hubert Elementary School, Buffalo Jones Elementary School, Edith Scheuerman Elementary School, Florence Wilson Elementary School, Jennie Wilson Elementary School, Victor Ornelas Elementary School, and Garden City High School.

There will also be a number of locations where the district will have school buses in the community for families to go to get the meals.  The times and locations include:

10:15 – 11:30 a.m. at Acosta Trailer Park, 2601 W. Mary Street, and Wagon Wheel, 1402 Boots Road.

The meals will be delivered curbside at the locations.  For the safety of those getting the meals and the safety of the workers, please do not exit the vehicle when picking up the meals.  Parents can use the mirror tags that they had during the school year for the Grab and Go lunches to pick up the food.  Children may also walk to the locations to receive the bagged food.

The program is funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is an equal opportunity provider.  The nutritious Grab and Go meals are provided free to children and youth age 18 and under.
