Though students in the Denair Unified School District will begin the 2020-21 school year under a distance-learning format because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the free food program still will be available to all of them.
Free breakfasts, lunches and even a late-afternoon snack will be distributed Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. via a drive-through line in the Denair Middle School parking lot. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, meals for that day will be available. On Thursdays, enough food to last through Friday will be distributed.
Parents, relatives and caregivers of any Denair student at all grade levels may pick up food. Children do not need to be present.
The meals are paid for by government programs and prepared by the Denair food services staff. They include plenty of fruits, vegetables, milk, juice and healthy snacks in addition to students’ favorites like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, chicken nuggets and pizza.
