The San Bernardino City Unified School District’s Nutrition Services announced earlier this week, they will be changing how often students will be able to pick up meals.
Instead of “Grab ‘N’ Go” meals three days a week, now students will only receive meals one day a week starting today, March 10. The district says this will allow sites to provide families with produce and bulk items instead of just pre-prepared foods.
“We have been so proud to be able to assist our families during this difficult time,” said Adriane Robles, the director of Nutrition Services. “While we wish things could return to normal for our students and families as soon as possible, my team is proud that we can at least make sure that our students don’t have to worry about where to find food.”
Each Wednesday, Grab ‘N’ Go Meal distribution sites will provide five days worth of breakfast, lunch, and dinner for each child and will include milk, juice, and some prepared meals per child, a 20-pound box of produce and some bulk items per family.
Nutrition Services will also provide families with recipes and proper food handling techniques to help them make a variety of healthy meals.
