Garfield Re-2 grab-and-go meal delivery changes announced
Garfield School District Re-2 will continue to offer grab-and-go meals this week, but is changing its schedule to include three drive-through locations across the district and adding several mobile delivery stops.
Families will be able to drive through at Wamsley Elementary, Cactus Valley Elementary and Elk Creek Elementary to pick up breakfasts and lunches for the number of children under the age of 18 they have in their household.
In addition, the mobile routes with yellow school buses will be reduced from two daily down to one stop, from 11 a.m. to noon at the locations listed below.
Any child under the age of 18 will be able to receive free lunch, along with a breakfast for the following day.
This opportunity is provided as an extension of the USDA’s Summer Nutrition program.
At the drive-through locations, families will be asked to verify the number of children in their households and will receive a sticker to place in their window as they pick up the meals.
Meals will be available at the following locations from 11 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday:
Wamsley Elementary (drive-through)
Davidson Park, 715 Fir Ave.
Cottonwood Park, 27653 U.S. Highway 6
