As Kansas City Public Schools near the start of hybrid learning in school buildings on March 15, Child Nutrition Services ended its “Meals On the Bus” deliveries on Wednesday, March 3.
The curbside pickup program will continue from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday at J.A. Rogers Elementary School, Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School, Northeast Middle School and Central High School.
Meals will still be provided for all children age 18 and younger. Families can receive enough food for a household of up to six without any sign-ups or other paperwork.
KCPS will be launching hybrid meal options as students start the process of returning to school buildings for hybrid learning. This initiative will provide several options for students to receive their school meals.
In-person meals will be available to students learning on-site. Students in the Monday/Tuesday Cohort will receive their Wednesday through Friday meals on Tuesdays as they leave for the day. Students learning in the Thursday/Friday Cohort will receive their Monday through Wednesday meals on Fridays as they leave for the day.
Weekly meal pick-ups will occur on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. KCPS recommends this option for virtual learners or families who need additional resources. Weekly meal pick-ups in the Northeast will happen at neighborhood schools Garfield, Gladstone, and James elementary schools, Northeast middle and high schools.
Families may request meal deliveries to their homes on a weekly basis. Cafe to Home deliveries will be made on Wednesdays. Call the food line at (816) 418-3663 to sign up.
KCPS will continue supporting community partners with daily deliveries to KCPS Partner Sites.
