Grab & Go Meals

  • September 10, 2020

    Good afternoon BCSD families,

    On August 31, 2020, USDA announced that ALL students will be able to receive free breakfast and lunch through December 31, 2020.

    The Nutrition Services Department began its fall Grab and Go program for all families this week. This program was modeled after our Summer Feeding Program, a USDA funded program that was also available to all families over the summer. We experienced a larger than expected volume of families who want/need food this week. We apologize for any frustrations to families who waited patiently in line and weren’t able to receive meal bags due to shortages.

    To prevent any meal shortages with future distributions, it is now REQUIRED that each parent/guardian complete this sign-up form.

    Grab and Go Sign Up form

    Upon arrival at the pick-up location you designate below, you will need to provide your name. Your name must be on the list in order to receive meals. Each meal bag will still consist of 5 breakfasts, 5 lunches and 10 milks.

    Also, based on feedback, distribution pick-up times and locations have changed.  We will no longer be distributing food from Berea-Midpark Middle School due to a lack of space and storage. 

    Tuesdays: Grindstone Elementary School from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
    Thursdays: Brook Park Elementary School from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
    Thursdays: Brook Park Elementary School from 4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

    Pick-up at Grindstone Elementary is at the side cafeteria/gymnasium entrance.
    Pick-up at Brook Park Elementary is behind the school.
    Students are permitted to walk up and give his or her family last name.

    If your name is not on the list, you will be asked to pull aside and wait until the end of the distribution time to receive any available extra/not picked up meals.

    Thank you for your cooperation,

    Briana Cates, MS, RD, LD
