Crook County School District expands grab-and-go meal program

New times and locations to start Monday, March 23rd

With schools in Oregon closed through at least the end of April, Crook County School District (CCSD) is feeding more students who depend on school meals.

The Nutrition Services and Transportation teams began busing meals to nine locations earlier this week but expanded that service to 17 sites in order to create better access for children and families.

“No child should go without a meal,” explained Michelle Williams, Transportation Manager for CCSD. “We’ll continue to evaluate the stops and make changes along the way.”

The plan is to provide 600 breakfast meals and 600 lunches starting Monday, March 23rd for a total of 1,200 meals per day.  Students can access those meals Monday-Friday throughout the school closure.

Families with questions about meals or pick-up sites can call (541) 447-7789 or (541) 447-5664.
