Snacks are only available for children who are present and will be available 3-5 times a week.  


In an attempt to maintain at least 6 feet of distance when handing out meals we will ask families how many meals they need, put the packages on a table then step away while a family member picks up the meal.


Any child ages 1-18 (including toddlers) can receive one breakfast, one lunch and one supper per day to eat at home, in addition to the fresh fruit and vegetable snack. No identification or proof of school enrollment is required. Meals are not to be eaten on site. There will be no public access inside the schools. Schools and bus stops are not places to socialize or congregate at this time.  Meals will be served on a first come first served basis.  Locations and times may change. 


If your child requires special meal accommodations, please contact our office at 208-854-4067 to make arrangements.
