Wednesday Meal Pick-Up Starts July 21
We want to remind families that free summer meals will be picked up on Wednesdays starting July 21, now that summer school is over.
The meal kits, which include home-preparation breakfast and lunch for seven days, will be distributed on Wednesdays from 11 to 11:30 a.m. from July 21 through Aug. 18.
Meal kits may be picked up from any of the following schools without pre-ordering:
- Chinook Middle School
- Desert Hills Middle School
- Highlands Middle School
- Horse Heaven Hills Middle School
Note: Park Middle School's kitchen is undergoing maintenance work and will not be serving meals this summer.
Meal kits are free to all children ages 18 and younger through the USDA Summer Food Program for Children.
Good News For Families Next School Year
The federal school meal waiver program that started during the pandemic has been extended and the Kennewick School District will continue to offer free meals to all students through the 2021-22 school year.
