Food and Family Resources through School Districts we serve:

Evergreen School Districthttps://sites.google.com/evergreenps.org/coronavirus-resources/coronavirus-information

Meals sites/delivery: Beginning on Tuesday, March 17, we will be feeding any student or community child through two different programs.

Breakfast/lunch “grab and go” meals will be available from 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. at:

  • Burton Elementary
  • Cascade Middle School
  • Covington Middle School
  • Crestline Elementary
  • Ellsworth Elementary
  • Hearthwood Elementary
  • Heritage High School
  • Mill Plain Elementary
  • Silver Star Elementary

In addition, we will deliver meals using school buses operating on normal morning elementary routes throughout the district. Students of all ages (not just elementary) may wait at the elementary regular time/bus stop, and the bus will stop to deliver both breakfast and lunch at the same time. Per USDA Federal Program requirements, our serving staff and drivers are only allowed to hand out one meal per child present.

We will also operate normal morning Special Needs routes. A household member will need to be available to come out to the bus and collect the meals.

To accommodate students who usually walk to school, buses will end their routes at schools to offer breakfast and lunch pick-up as follows:

From 8:30am – 9:30am:

  • Burnt Bridge Creek Elementary
  • Image Elementary
  • Marrion Elementary

From 9:00am – 10:00am:

  • Columbia Valley Elementary
  • Endeavour Elementary
  • Fircrest Elementary
  • Fisher’s Landing Elementary
  • Harmony Elementary
  • Illahee Elementary
  • Orchards Elementary
  • Pioneer Elementary
  • Riverview Elementary
  • Sifton Elementary
  • Sunset Elementary
  • York Elementary

Bus drivers will also have free/reduced meal applications that can assist families as circumstances change since they offer additional resources beyond student meals.
