Beginning Monday, March 30, 2020, DCSD will transition to a modified meal service plan. Under the new plan, meals will be distributed on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Meals will no longer be delivered daily. Students will receive a two-day meal package on each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday as shown below:
Meal Distribution Days
Monday: 2 Lunch Meals & 2 Snacks (for Mon/Tues)
Wednesday: 2 Lunch Meals & 2 Snacks (for Wed/Thur)
Friday: 2 Lunch Meals & 2 Snacks (for Fri/Sat)
The 21 meal distribution sites will remain operational and the bus meal delivery will continue following the amended plan of meal service on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
On Friday, April 3, 2020, students will receive five (5) days of meals in addition to their Friday meal. This will ensure that our students have food during the week of April 6-10, 2020.
