“Grab & Go” Meal Pick Up Sites

"Grab and Go" Meal Pick Up Sites

The Food and Nutrition Services department will be serving a “Grab & Go” breakfast and lunch at selected schools and community sites. The USDA has granted the District the flexibility to provide these meals during a time of unanticipated closure.

Breakfast and lunch will be served together in a single bag. The meals are free for anyone 18 years of age and under. It is expected the meals will be eaten at home, and not the schools where they are picked up.

  • All current school-based distribution sites will continue offering meals from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • Bonita Springs Elementary will close as a DISTRICT feeding site. Bonita Springs Middle School will open in its place.
  • Ten bus routes will drop to nine. Service will discontinue on Route 10 with stops at Arroyal Rd. & Carolina St., Pennsylvania Ave. & Playa Del Rey Ln., Wisconsin St. & Carolina St., Matheson Ave. & Goodwin St. and Rosemary Dr. & Sherwood Ln. in Bonita Springs.
