Meal Distribution — Back to School Virtual

Food Service Meal Distribution - 2020
Posted on 08/25/2020
Virtual School. Real Meals.

School Meals for students to eat at home during virtual learning will be distributed two different ways while Comstock Public Schools is in a full virtual, learn at home, school day.

Every Tuesday and Thursday, we will have 8 Bus Routes distributing meals. We will start at 11:30 a.m., and continue until finished, around 12:30 p.m. It is important to remember that we will NOT be delivering to the door. Families MUST meet the bus at the stop.

Meals may be picked up at Comstock High School on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

We have recently received permission from the USDA to serve school meals to ALL children in our community ages 18 and under. A child no longer has to be enrolled in Comstock Schools to receive our school meals.

We do ask that someone from each of our student's households fill out this household survey.  The survey assists in other funding areas for your school building, so PLEASE take a few minutes out of your day to complete this survey to the best of your abilities. 

On TUESDAY:
Breakfast for Wednesday & Thursday and Lunch for Tuesday & Wednesday

On THURSDAY:
Breakfast for Friday, Monday, and Tuesday plus Lunch for Thursday, Friday, and Monday

School meal distribution and pickup schedules will be updated monthly, and will change once students return to learning in the classroom. Stay tuned for any future updates.



Meal Info – October

Bus delivery to homes, and our apartment communities, will end on Tuesday September 29. We cannot continue to provide meals door-to-door once we have students on campus. This is a USDA regulation. Under the National School Lunch Program, and Extended Summer Food Program, the district will be able to offer pick up meals, and that is what we will do moving forward for learners not in the building.

We will have a one-time special pick up for virtual students (and all other children in the community) at CHS on Thursday October 1 from 12-2pm. Child meals will include 4 school breakfast meals and 4 school lunch meals on this day. Have you seen these amazing frozen meals we are packing at CHS? They are awesome!

Virtual learning meal pickups will change to every Wednesday from 12pm - 2pm at CHS beginning Wednesday October 7. This will continue every Wednesday until CHS/CMS is in person. Students will receive 5 days of breakfast meals and 5 days of school lunch meals. This is our only scheduled meal pickup time at this moment. There will no longer be any late afternoon/early evening pickup of meals after Tuesday 9/29. Any adult can pick up meals for kids, but we will not be accepting any special requests for delivery.

We are seeing lots more families coming to get meals for their kiddos on our pick up days. We can only forecast our meal bags on what we handed out the previous week, and sometimes our crystal ball is wrong. We may run out, but we will continue to do the best we can each and every week.

If any student has a special diet request for at-home learning meals, we will make special meals available for their needs. Please email us at foodhelp@comstockps.org with such requests.



If you wish to opt out of school meal delivery or pick-up, please send an email with your child's name, school name, and address to: foodhelp@comstockps.orgor call the food service office at 269-250-8719.
