CCSD said they provided 7,600 meals to students through the food distribution pods on the first day. On a typical school day, CCSD serves about 100,000 breakfasts and 175,000 lunches for a total of 275,000 meals.

Parents can also pick up academic resources at these sites. Clark High School Principal Kerry Larnerd said the goal is to make sure kids stay safe and healthy during this time away from school.

"We really need to be there for our families, be here for our students especially, no matter what’s going on out around us and in the community but this is so vital to keep our kids going through the next few weeks," said Larnerd.

Many parents picking up food for their kids Monday said this assistance is needed during such a stressful time.

"It makes sure they have a healthy meal, it takes a little stress off me having to fix them a meal," said Tiffany Hill, mom of four.

"They eat a lot. They’re all going through growth spurts at the same time so it does make it very hard, very hard," said Kay-la Shows, mom of five with one more on the way.

In order to comply with federal regulations, a school-age child must be present for food to be distributed. The pickup location will be set up outside of the school sites to facilitate distribution.

CCSD is working with its rural communities to set up food distribution and will communicate to these communities directly.

Additionally, CCSD will be working with our government and community partners to set up food distribution options to ensure our students have access to additional food. Information on these options will be shared with parents as soon as it is available.
