SRVUSD Child Nutrition Program Update
Posted 9/24/20

The Free for All Student Meal program, sponsored by the USDA, is in effect until December 31, 2020. In addition to this program, USDA is also sponsoring the Farmers to Families Food Box Program that helps farmers distribute their surplus food products to families in need nationwide. Please note that the number of food boxes we receive depends on our supplier and is not something the Child Nutrition Department controls. Food boxes are distributed one day a week and are available on a first come, first served basis only. We hope that our families most in need will be able to take advantage of receiving these and encourage these families to arrive early on Wednesdays to one of our 8 distribution sites. While we do not discourage anyone, please only take the food boxes if you need them. We have enough for those that are truly in need. We do not have the same limitations with the Breakfast and Lunch Meals and therefore can provide student meals to all children 18 and under. 

 

New! SRVUSD Child Nutrition will start serving weekend CN student meals beginning on Friday, October 9th.   Serving times and location will stay the same: 10:00 - 1:00 at John Baldwin.

 

Due to safety concerns, families are asked to remain in their vehicles and in line when picking up food. Staff members will assist families in order. For complete information, please visit the Child Nutrition website and FAQs.

Breakfast/Lunch Meals

  • Any parent with children 18 years old and under can pick up a breakfast & lunch meal at our designated meal locations for free. Parents do not have to pre-order.

  • Meals will be distributed on Monday (2 breakfasts and 2 lunches) and Wednesday (3 breakfasts and 3 lunches) at the current 8 locations. 
  • Serving times: 10 a.m.- 1 p.m. 
  • Parents unable to pick up student meals should contact Child Nutrition at 925-824-1808 or srvusdeats@srvusd.net to make other arrangements.
  • Child Nutrition Services will ensure families with children in need receive meals. 

 USDA Food Boxes

  • USDA Food Boxes will be available at 8 school locations every Wednesday. 
    • The Child Nutrition Department does not control how many boxes will be available weekly nor does it have control over what is inside the produce boxes. 
    • There is no charge for the food boxes.
    • The Child Nutrition Department is unable to take reservations of produce boxes; please arrive early if your family would like or needs a produce box. 

SRVUSD Social workers are available to help families in need. Food insecurity should not occur, and families should not suffer silently. Social services resources can be found here. Please contact your school's support counselor for more assistance.
