FREE "Grab-n-Go Meals while schools are closed

Free meals during school closure

Updates to Grab-N-Go Meal program effective 3/30/2020

  • 1) We will be distributing meals from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday only.

    • Students will still receive 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches per week as they will get 2 days of meals on Monday, and 3 days of meals on Wednesday.

     

    2) Meals will only be available for pick-up at the following schools:

    • Bremerton High School

    • Armin Jahr Elementary

    • West Hills STEM Academy

     

    Families can visit any of these locations to pick up meals. All locations are open to all children!

     

    3) Some bus routes will be combined to minimize the number of bus drivers needed for delivery.

    • Buses will be going to all stops, but times may be changing.

    • A few bus stops have been added.

    • Information on bus route changes is available on each school's home page, and are listed below by Elementary School (so look for the route for the elementary school nearest you to find bus stops for your middle or high school students). 

Grab-n-Go Meal Guidelines/Reminders

    • Families can wait at any bus stop or visit any of of our three schools distributing meals to pick-up meals. We encourage families to do what is most convenient for them. 
    • All children are welcome to participate in our program. There is no income requirement and students do not have to qualify for free or reduced lunch to participate.
    • Meals are available for any child under age 18, including younger siblings who may not be enrolled in school. Lunches are also available for any currently-enrolled student up to age 21 (such as special education or Open Doors students).
    • With our combined bus routes serving more families, our buses may be running late. Please plan on the possibility of buses running 10-15 minutes late. Thank you for your patience.
    • Since children will be receiving multiple meals at a time, families might want to consider bringing bags, boxes or a wagon to carry food home with them.
    • Children no longer have to be present to pick-up meals. Parents/guardians may pick-up meals for their children. Meals still intended for children age 18 and under, or BSD students up to age 18.
    • The Boys & Girls Club began offering "Grab & Go" meals TODAY at the Bremerton Teen Center. Families are welcome to pick-up meals from the Boys & Girls Club and the Bremerton School District.
