BULLHEAD CITY – The Bullhead City School District’s (BCSD) free summer meal program is
underway, with onsite meals at no charge for all enrolled students, as well as anyone in the
community 18 and under.
Children are served in school cafeterias.
Following summer school’s conclusion on June 15, meals will be available only for those
children participating in “Kinder Camp,” a transition program for incoming BCSD kindergartners in
July.
Summer meals are provided at five campuses : Desert Valley, Diamondback and Sunrise
Elementary Schools, Bullhead City Middle School and Fox Creek Junior High School. Breakfasts are
served at 7:15 a.m. before summer school class, with lunch at 12:00 noon just before dismissal.
Unlike summer meal programs during the COVID-19 pandemic, BCSD does not have drive-
through meal pick-ups or neighborhood deliveries this year. To-go meals have been discontinued.
Meals are part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s annual Summer Food Service
Program, a bipartisan effort dating back to 1948. The federally-funded, state-administered
program reimburses plan operators (schools and various non-profit agencies) that serve free
healthy meals and snacks to children and teens in low-income areas when the regular school year
is not in session. For many students, school meals are their only reliable healthy meals each day.
BCSD participates in the Arizona Department of Education-administered “Seamless Summer
Option” program.
Meals are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, disability
or age (up to 18). There will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.
Parents with questions may call the BCSD offices during regular business hours.
