School meals will continue during extended break

The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District will continue to feed students during the extended spring break, according to a press release.

With schools closed to students, KPBSD will provide free “Get It & Go” breakfast and lunch meals for KPBSD students at food distribution buses for youth age 18 and younger.

Sign-up online and choose your pick-up location.

Action Needed: Complete the simple online sign-up for free daily lunch and breakfast meal service delivery. For families without access to the internet, call KPBSD Student Nutrition Services at 907-714-8890.

Twenty-five pickup locations throughout the Kenai Peninsula will be open daily from noon-1:00 p.m. beginning Tuesday, March 17 through Friday, March 20, and extending throughout the school closures. Parents choose their location when they sign-up. A KPBSD student must be present with parents at the pickup location. We apologize that no special dietary substitutions will be accommodated.

If a student attends any of these KPBSD schools, all household children 18 and younger are eligible for daily free meal service: Kalideoscope School of Arts and Science, Kenai Alternative, Kenai Central High School, Kenai Middle School, Mountain View Elementary, Nanwalek School, Nikolaevsk School, Ninilchik School, Port Graham School, River City Academy, Skyview Middle School, Sterling Elementary, Tebughna School, and Tustumena Elementary.

If your child or children do not attend these KPBSD schools (including Connections Homeschool), only the children currently enrolled in KPBSD are eligible for free breakfast and lunch.

Pickup locations will be open from noon-1 p.m. beginning Tuesday, March 17.
