District provides free healthy meals for kids during school closures
LA CROSSE, Wis., (March 18, 2020) – Schools are closed but the School District of La Crosse is providing free, nutritious meals for kids daily at sites around La Crosse. Starting tomorrow, March 19, a take-home breakfast and lunch will be provided in pre-packaged paper bags at each site, once per day. Sites and times are listed below.
Given that our school buildings are closed, meals will be distributed at these sites to children from a GO Riteway school bus stationed at each location. We strongly encourage practicing social distancing when picking up and thorough hand-washing with soap and water before eating the take-home meals.
Neighborhood food site location and additional food pick up details:
- All children 18 or younger in the household may receive one breakfast meal and one lunch meal daily, Monday – Friday
- No identification is required
- Please bring reusable bags
The district will also have drive-up locations available at both Spence Elementary and Logan High Schools from 11:00am-12:00pm.
The district has also set up a telephone hotline for those families who are unable to make it to or missed a stop time. If you call 608.789.5880, we have a limited number of drivers who will be able to make a delivery stop. The hotline will be staffed from 8am-1pm.
If you need further assistance with meals for your family, here is a full list of food pantries and other community resources in our area.
