In the wake of Gov. Steve Sisolak’s announcement Sunday that all public, private and charter schools in Nevada will temporarily close beginning Monday, the state Department of Agricultre and the Clark County School District have announced details on on free meals for students would be available for pick-up at sites statewide.
The state department will implement a summer schedule meal delivery program with meals “served in a grab-and-go style to minimize contamination potential and avoid delays,” according to a news release.
If widespread closures reduce capacity of school central kitchens, schools will start distributing unprepared “household food” such as dry or canned goods, not prepared meals.
NDA has received waivers from the USDA to provide emergency food response to affected communities “with reduced risk through temporarily eliminating signature requirements and reducing and contact,” the statement said.
The department and CCSD released a list of food distribution sites and hours, which will be updated on its Facebook page:
Twenty-seven CCSD sites throughout the Las Vegas Valley are distributing grab and go meals from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Parents can also pick up academic resources at these sites. A child between the ages of 2 and 18 must be present for food to be distributed, but the child does not have to be a CCSD student.
