Since the issued formal order to stay at home has proceeded, many are inconvenienced as a wave of schools were shut down in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19. This new guidance from the Center for Disease and Control and Prevention is to combat the spread of this illness, but it leaves a gap in our daily routines. As many businesses shut their doors, it leaves many parents or providers of the household in a more stressful position than they already might be in. 

“We’re in a bit of a free fall,” said Sasha Pudelski, advocacy director for AASA, the School Superintendents Association. “Trying to figure out how to serve kids, keep them safe, and do right by our communities is the triple challenge.” 

The Sacramento City Unified School District Nutrition Services Department is providing meal access for students affected by the school’s closures. During certain hours of the day families will be able to grab a meal.

The Department will offer free breakfast and lunch at over 40 SCUSD schools from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The meals will be distributed at the front office at each site, as well as 4:30 p.m. through 6 p.m. Monday through Friday at 14 other locations, including the district’s Serna Center. 

Make sure to look for a white District vehicle in front of the school office with our apple logo. District staff will deliver meals to your car. Please call Nutrition Services at 916-395-5600 for more information. 

A white District vehicle with an Apple logo in front of the school office will confirm that the school will be serving breakfast and lunches.
