Carson City School District’s Nutrition Services have been approved to provide free breakfast and lunch for all children aged 18 and under through June 2021.
Meals will continue to be provided at the student’s request on campus. Meals for the following day will also be available in grab-and-go style for students participating in the hybrid learning model where they attend school in-person twice weekly.
Monday through Friday meal boxes can be picked up between 9-11 a.m. for all full-time online remote learners at all Carson City School District school sites – except Pioneer High School. Parents or guardians may pick up meals without student(s) present. Parents and families must contact Nutrition Services at 775-283-2150 to sign up to pickup the meals or if they have additional questions.
The USDA has extended the free school meal program to millions of children nationwide. The program allows families in need to pick up free food from any convenient school campus, even if their child is not enrolled there. In the past, this program was only offered during summer months when school was not in session. Now it has been extended through June 30, 2021 (subject to change due to available funding).
