KCPS to distribute meals to students week of April 4

Kansas City Public Schools is offering sack lunches for all KCPS students at certain times and locations next week (listed below).

Since the beginning of the school closure, KCPS has served over 65,000 meals to students, according to data provided by Child Nutrition Services Director Jordan Gordon.

Kansas City Public Schools will be distributing the meals free-of-charge for KCPS students from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, April 6, and Wednesday, April 8, at the following locations:

  • East High School (1924 Van Brunt Blvd.)
  • Northeast High School (415 Van Brunt Blvd.)
  • Central High School (3221 Indiana Ave.)
  • African-Centered College Preparatory Academy-Lower Campus (6410 Swope Parkway)

KCPS has also provided a sign-up link for students and families who may need home delivery. Please email food@kcpublicschools.org or call 816.418.3663 (FOOD) if your family needs home delivery.

“I have to sincerely express my appreciation for the faculty and staff members in this organization,” said KCPS Superintendent Dr. Mark Bedell. “Even our custodial and food service teams, they are boxing lunches. These people are working hard and they are the engine of the school district. They keep things moving. I think sometimes, the Superintendent is the one that everybody hears and the one that people will praise, but ultimately, the Superintendent is only as good as the people who work beside the Superintendent. I really want to commend all of these people who are out here in the trenches working hard because they genuinely care.”
