Student Meals During Closure - Latest Information

June 1st,  2020

PALOUSE SCHOOL SUMMER FOOD DELIVERY UPDATE:

As of June 30th Palouse (unless things change) will no longer be permitted to participate in the Summer Food Service Program, thus our weekly food deliveries will be discontinued.  The last delivery is scheduled to take place on June 22nd and will included items for the 22- 30th

Those of you receiving the Back-Pack food items through the Palouse School Food Pantry will still receive this assistance through out the summer.  Of those not receiving the Back-Pack food items, we would like to know if you are interested in receiving them.  The Back-Pack program provides weekend food for students in need.  The Palouse School Food Pantry is not part of the normal school lunch program, but is provided for through donations organized by Jayne Olesen.  We are not sure of ample donations to continue indefinitely, but we would like to know of your needs so our fund-raising efforts can have direction.

If you need this Back-Pack support and would like to be included please provide your information in the form provided below and return it to the delivery driver before the end of June.  You may also call Jayne Olesen at 208-882-0941  or email her at jolesen@garpal.net

March 17, 2020 Update

School Meals During the Closure:

GARPAL schools are working on a plan to insure the meal needs of students are provided for during this extended school closure.  As the situation is constantly changing, modifications may be forthcoming, but for now we will proceed as follows:

 

CURRENTLY - WEEK OF 17th-20th

If you have an immediate need for school breakfast or lunch please contact the appropriate school – Garfield 509-635-1331 or Palouse 509-878-1921 so we can meet your needs.

Next Week - March 23rd- 27th!

On Monday we plan to provide Grab & Go (sack) meals for those needing school breakfast & lunch support during the closure. Exactly how this will materialize depends on the number of students participating, so in order to prepare we need an approximate number. 

If you plan to participate in the Grab & Go breakfast/lunch meals please contact the appropriate school ASAP so we can be prepared for implementation on Monday. You do not need to commit for the full six-weeks at this time and you can join at any time, we just need to plan for next week at this point!

 

Exact details, pick up locations etc. will be shared as we know the number of participants and develop the appropriate plan.
