Richland School District has provided more than 100,000 meals to students since buildings were closed in mid-March. Now the district is enhancing the Student Meal Assistance program so students can eat every day of the week.
Additional food items for students to eat through a weekend will begin being distributed on Fridays beginning April 24. This will include a quart of milk and frozen food items to reheat and a short instruction sheet will be included. Friday's meal and weekend products along with the milk will fit in a standard backpack for walkers and riders and students at bus stops.
These meals are FREE and open to all children in our district.
