One of the Kent School District’s top priorities during the long closure ahead will be to provide meals for all students.
As the unprecedented coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has forced the closing of the school district, officials want to reassure families that all children in the community, up to age 18, whether or not on the Free or Reduced Meal Program, will be fed.
Service times and locations are subject to change.
Must be 0-18 years old: The child or teen must be 18 years old or younger to receive free meals.
Must be present: The eligible child or teen must be present to receive their grab-and-go breakfast and lunch meals.
Available Monday-Friday from 10 to 11 a.m.
The program began March 17. Free breakfast and lunch meals will be distributed together Monday-Friday between 10 and 11 a.m. at select school and community partner sites throughout the district throughout the closure.
