CHILD NUTRITION PICK-UP SCHEDULE MOVING TO TWICE A WEEK:
(updated 3.30.2020) In an effort to better serve and protect the health of students, families, food service providers, and staff at community feeding sites, NOLA Public Schools and our partners are condensing the weekly schedule at the Citywide Feeding Program sites by providing multiple days of meals during specific daily time frames. NOLA-PS also asks the business community for its support in ensuring that working families are allowed to leave work to pick-up these meals to ensure they are able to benefit from this program. See updated schedule below:
Starting on Monday, March 30 – every Monday, meals will be provided for two days.
- Every Wednesday, meals will be provided for three days.
- Moving forward Community Feeding sites will NOT be open on Tuesday, Thursday or Friday.
- Service Hours remain the same: 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
- Families wishing to access information on child nutrition resources should visit the District’s webpage at https://nolapublicschools.com/covid19/nutrition.
- This webpage has the most up-to-date listing of where food services are available.
Students over 18 that are enrolled in public K-12 schools, including students with disabilities through age 22, are also eligible for free meals at open sites.
Students do not need to be present to receive meals. Parents or caregivers may pick up meals on behalf of the students within their household.
Child nutrition resources are available to those under 18 years of age and those who currently attend a public school.
Students who are over 18 years of age and are currently enrolled in public schools will also be allowed to access the community feeding programming. Schools will be contacting those families directly to ensure they are aware of the services available to them.
As a precaution, the District has reissued reminders to all officials at school child nutrition sites to follow the health screening protocols provided by the District for feeding sites. Screening methods include, but are not limited to, daily temperature checks of staff before meals are prepared. Those guidelines apply to all sites operating in the Citywide Coordinated Feeding Effort. NOLA-PS in coordination with the New Orleans Health Department will make decisions regarding the operation of individual Community Feeding sites as a result of this screening method.
Since Monday, March 16, approximately 187,290 meals and counting have been served to students in Orleans Parish, with over 52,290 meals served today.
