BCESD SCHOOL MEAL PICK-UPS AVAILABLE TUESDAY AT TWO SITES
BULLHEAD CITY – The popularity of the Bullhead City Elementary School District’s Thanksgiving week meal neighborhood delivery program resulted in some, but not all, routes running out of food. Families that were unable to get meals Monday will be able to pick them up at two schools on Tuesday.
Drive up grab-and-go bagged meals will be available at Fox Creek Junior High and Desert Valley School parking lots from 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. on November 24. Chartwells, the BCESD food service vendor, will do everything possible to provide food for all children in need, said Superintendent Carolyn Stewart. “Bullhead City Elementary School District apologizes for underestimating the number of meals that were needed on some routes for Mondays bus deliveries to neighborhoods,” said Dr. Stewart.
Free meals are available to all children 18 years and under, regardless of where they go to school. They will receive breakfast and lunch for the remainder of the week while schools are on Thanksgiving break. The program is funded by a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant.
