Public schools in Broward County have been closed for nearly two months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the district is still serving meals.
To date, the district has served over a million meals to the community. He remains committed to serving the community by providing take-out meals for breakfast and lunch for children and their families.
This milestone showcases the dedication, sacrifice and hard work of the food and nutrition staff who work tirelessly to provide this needed service during this critical time.
To reduce travel and safely maintain social distancing, meal distribution is available twice a week in some schools where families can have multiple meals at a time.
There are 25 elementary schools, 11 colleges, and 15 high school distribution sites in Broward County, including Challenger Elementary in Tamarac, Pinewood Elementary in North Lauderdale, and JP Taravella in Coral Springs.
The distribution of meals takes place on Mondays and Wednesdays only from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., where children and their families can have several meals each.
Absent children can still receive meals on presentation of a valid identity document. Meals are distributed in the loop of the bus or car as they get on or walk to reduce the risk of exposure.
