In direct response to school closures as a result of the COVID-19, Butte County Office of Education is pleased to announce that during the 2-week closure, there will be an opportunity for families to pick up free “grab-and-go” meals at 26 locations throughout Butte County for children 18 and under beginning this Thursday, March 19 through Friday, April 17. Meal service dates and times will vary, please see District websites for exact information.
These meals will be available for free for anyone 18 and under regardless of what school they attend. No paperwork is required. Meals will be provided based on the number of children present.
We encourage families to continue to be proactive in reducing the risk of COVID-19 by not congregating at the meal sites and continuing to utilize social distancing. For this reason, all meals are designed to be “grab-and-go” and meals will not be consumed on-site.
