    While schools are closed, Richland One is providing “grab-and-go” breakfasts and lunches for students on weekdays at designated locations. Starting March 30, families will receive a week’s worth of meals on Mondays.


    “The change will reduce the number of trips families have to make to the pick-up locations for meals. The meals will be picked up once a week for the entire week,” said Richland One Nutrition Services Director Tracy Dixon. 


    Along with offering curbside meal pick-ups, the district also has been making bus deliveries to a limited number of sites. With the new meal distribution process, bus deliveries will end after Friday, March 27, Dixon said. Richland One is working with community partners to provide home deliveries to parents who are unable to pick up meals for their children from one of the 10 sites.


    To help the Nutrition Services staff know how many meals to prepare, Richland One parents are asked to complete an online form. Parents can access the form directly at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/R1Meals or via the district’s website (www.richlandone.org). Parents will receive a follow-up email after they complete the form.


    All children 18 and under are eligible to receive the free meals. Parents can drive to any of the locations, remain in their vehicles and staff will distribute the meals curbside. The pick-up hours will be 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Mondays. Children must be present to receive the meals.


    Meal Pick-up Sites Starting March 30 (MONDAYS ONLY – 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.)






    Mientras que las escuelas estén cerradas, Richland Uno ofrece a los estudiantes desayunos y almuerzos para llevar en lugares designados. A partir del 30 de marzo, las familias recibirán las comidas de la semana los días lunes.


    El cambio reducirá el número de viajes que las familias tienen que hacer para recoger las comidas. Las comidas se recogerán una vez para la semana entera.


    Además de ofrecer las comidas para llevar, el distrito ha estado haciendo entregas en buses a un número limitado de lugares. Con el nuevo proceso de distribución de comidas, la distribución en buses terminara el viernes 27 de marzo. Richland Uno está trabajando con negocios de la comunidad para ofrecer entrega a la casa a los padres que no pueden recoger las comidas en los 10 lugares asignados.


    Para saber cuántas comidas se deben preparar, se pide a los padres de familia completar una encuesta en línea. Los padres pueden acceder a la encuesta en español https://es.surveymonkey.com/r/R1MealsSPANISH .Los padres recibirán en correo después de completar la encuesta.


    Todos los estudiantes menores de 18 años pueden recibir las comidas gratuitamente. Los padres pueden conducir a un sitio de entrega, permanecer en el vehículo. El horario es 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. los lunes. Los estudiantes deben estar presents para recibir las comidas.


    Lugares de entrega de comida a partir del 30 de marzo (SOLO LUNES – 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.)
