The USDA has recently announced the extension of the emergency waiver to provide free meals. The West Carrollton School District can now offer FREE breakfast and lunch meals for any child under the age of 18 residing in the school district. The USDA has stated that the program will be available through December 31 or “until funds are depleted,” meaning that the program could end with little notice.
The Curbside Meal program will be similar to the Grab and Go Meal program offered at the end of last school year. Five breakfasts and five lunches, along with milk, will be available on Fridays from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for pickup by parents or guardians of children under the age of 18 at one of six locations:
- West Carrollton High School – 5833 Student Street
- West Carrollton Middle School – 424 E. Main Street
- C. F. Holliday Elementary – 4100 S. Dixie Drive
- Frank Nicholas Elementary – 3846 Vance Road
- Harry Russell Elementary – 123 Elementary Drive
- Harold Schnell Elementary – 5995 Student Street
Note that the Frank Nicholas kitchen is being utilized as a second pickup area in Moraine.
Parents and guardians will now be able to pick up all meals for all of their children at the same location.
THE DEADLINE TO ORDER is the Thursday prior to the pickup day at 7 a.m. A separate order form must be completed for each child and MUST BE completed each week by the deadline date. The first deadline to order is Thursday, September 10 by 7 a.m. with meal pickup on Friday, September 11 between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
Curbside Meals will only be available for the days students are not scheduled to be in school. Example: If a student is attending school on Monday and Tuesday, he/she will receive their breakfast and lunch at school and will receive only three breakfasts and three lunches in the Curbside Meal pickup.
NOTE THAT SCHOOL IS NOT SCHEDULED for Friday, September 18 and Friday, October 16. Meals will be available on Thursday before those dates and the deadline to order will be on Wednesday.
