STUDENT MEAL PICK-UP LOCATIONS

The District is returning to its Summer meals format that allows all children 18-years or younger to receive breakfast, lunch, supper and snacks at no charge regardless of their school or free and reduced-priced meal status. Mutliple days' worth of meals can be picked up from 8 am to 1 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the following 15 schools:

  • De Anza, El Cerrito, Kennedy, Pinole Valley and Richmond high schools
  • Lovonya DeJean, Helms, Hercules and Pinole middle schools
  • Bayview, Nystrom, and Riverside elementary schools
  • Montalvin Manor, Peres, and Verde K-8 schools.

Meals for Monday, Wednesday and Friday will be distributed with the Tuesday and Thursday meals.

A return to the summer program means that families will not need to show their child’s student ID number.

All students and families are still required to complete their lunch application by the end of September to be eligible to receive meals beginning in January. We still need every family to complete the school lunch forms as it impacts funding for programs beyond lunch. You can complete that form in English at bit.ly/mealswccusd and Spanish at bit.ly/spanishmealswccusd.

We will continue to follow the social distancing protocols, for your safety please wear a face mask and have your trunk open to place the meals inside. For more information please visit our website at www.pianmiu28.icu or call at 510-307-4580.  Be well and stay safe. Thank You!
