WARSAW — Warsaw Community Schools’ Food Services recently announced that for the week of July 6, there will not be meals served through the summer meals program.
Beginning July 13, children up through age 18 can continue receiving meals each Monday and Thursday through Aug. 6 at Lakeview Middle School. Children do not need to be present, but a new registration is required for the meals beginning in July.
In response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the USDA established a waiver to support access to nutritious meals while minimizing potential exposure to the coronavirus. This allows families to pick up multiple days of meals at one time.
The new plan for July and August will offer a Monday and a Thursday pick-up. Every Monday, three days of meals and half a gallon of milk will be available. On Thursdays, four days of meals and half a gallon of milk will be available for each child registered. All children in the household, up through age 18, can be registered.
Families do not have to be on free or reduced benefits to receive these meals. New meal pickup times are from 2 to 4 p.m. each Monday and Thursday at Lakeview Middle School at 848 E. Smith St., Warsaw.
