Free Meals for Our Students

Updated March 31, 2020

Free Meals Update

We have made a change to our free meal service to accommodate families with children who are sick. Starting April 1, if your child is sick, you may pick up a meal for them even if they are not present at the pick-up location. The parent/guardian will be asked to provide their full name and to attest that they have a child who could not be present. 

We want to continue to serve free meals during the closure and we need your help to make sure that free meals are available to all families who need them. We encourage families to avoid “collecting” meals from multiple serving sites in the same day. We ask that all families follow the honor system of taking only one meal per child, per day.

As a reminder, free meals will continue to be served during the scheduled Spring Break.

We appreciate your cooperation as we grow and learn how to best meet the needs of our community. We are committed to providing free meals for children through the school closure and look forward to being here for Kennewick families when they need the extra support.

Actualización de los Alimentos Gratis:

Hemos hecho un cambio a nuestro servicio de alimentos gratis para adaptarnos a nuestras familias con niños enfermos. Comenzando el 1º de abril, si su niño/a esta enfermo/a, los padres/tutores legales pueden recoger los alimentos para el/ella no es necesario de que esté presente en la ubicación de distribución. Se les preguntara el nombre completo del niño/a y atestiguar que tiene un niño/a enfermo/a que no pudo estar presente. 

Queremos continuar sirviendo alimentos gratis durante este cierre y necesitamos de su ayuda para asegurarnos que témenos alimentos gratis disponibles para todas nuestras familias quien lo necesita. Animamos a las familias a que eviten “acumular” alimentos de varias ubicaciones de distribución durante un mismo día. Les pedimos a todas las familias que digan el Sistema de honor de tomar solamente una bolsa de alimentos por niño/a, por día. 

Como recordatorio, los alimentos gratis continuaran siendo distribuidos durante la semana de descanso/vacaciones de primavera. 

Agradecemos su cooperación mientras crecemos y aprendemos de como satisfacer mejor las necesidades de nuestra comunidad. Estamos comprometidos a ofrecer los alimentos gratis a nuestros estudiantes durante este cierre escolar y esperamos estar aquí para las familias de Kennewick mientras necesitan el apoyo adicional.
