Student Meal Assistance
NOTE: Our Student Meal Assistance program ends June 16 and our Summer Meals Program begins June 17. While the district will continue to offer free meals for children in the community, there will be some changes to these efforts for the summer.
All children age 18 and younger may receive free meals at Richland schools or through delivery at select locations throughout the district beginning Tuesday, March 17 while schools are closed in response to the novel coronavirus COVID-19.
The meals will be bagged, include breakfast and lunch items and be provided each weekday during the closure. No identification is required though meals must be handed to a child. School lunchrooms will not be open to seating and children will be encouraged to take the meals home.
Weekend meal packs will be available every Friday at all pickup and delivery locations.
Additionally, printed copies of Extended Learning Packets for students in pre-K to Grade 5 will be available at all meal pickup and delivery locations Monday-Wednesday.
