LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — CCSD Food Service will open drive-thru food distribution sites beginning Wednesday, July 20 through Friday, August 5, 2022. Children 2-18 years of age are eligible for the free school meals. Families will be able to pick up the 'grab and go' meals at 17 sites districtwide.

Lisa Segler, the director of strategic initiatives with Three Square, said there's an overwhelming need for services like these in our community. Approximately 75% of CCSD students qualify for free or reduced price lunch.

“We know that every 1 in 4 kids lives in a food insecure household, meaning that they don’t know where that next meal is coming from. So, think about Allegiant Stadium, that’s enough kids to fill Allegiant stadium more than 2 times. That’s really unfortunate and we know that it’s a huge problem here," Segler said.

The sites will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Monday through Friday through August 5th. Breakfast and lunch will be provided daily. Three days worth of meals will be provided each Friday during this period to ensure children have weekend meals.

Parents/guardians are able to pick up meals for their child.
