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 16 sites in order to create better access for children and families.

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

Culver School District will run its normal morning Bus Routes, stopping at all scheduled stops, carrying “Brown Bag” Breakfast/Lunch packages.

Students, Parents and/or Caretakers can meet the bus at the normally scheduled time at their bus stop, or the bus stop that would be theirs if they did ride the bus but normally don’t, to grab their meals. The student does not have to be a regular bus rider to go to the bus stop and grab a meal.

Look for your friendly yellow bus for your meals on wheels 🙂

The Culver Cafeteria on the School District Campus will be open from 7:30 am to 9:30 am for ANY Students, Parents and/or Caretakers to come and pick up their “Brown Bag” meal to take home.
