Feeding Sites During COVID-19 Closure

KIDS EAT - Friends, Fun & Food

Owensboro Public Schools is dedicated to the health and well-being of our students and understand that anytime school closes for an extended period of time, it places a burden on families, especially those that rely on the school district for meals throughout the week.

Thankfully, our district will be able to provide breakfast and lunch meals at no cost to anyone under the age of 18 throughout the district’s closure for COVID-19.

Beginning Monday, March 30, meals will be served Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Meals will only be provided at drive-thru/walk-up locations at five different school sites.

All meals will be prepared in advance and will be individually packaged. A food service employee will ask you how many meals you need. Meals will then be set on a table in front of the school to be picked up after the food service employee has moved 6 ft away. This is to follow all social distancing guidelines and to assure numerous people aren’t coming in contact with the product.

Contrary to our Summer Feeding Program, meals are not to be consumed on site. It is recommended that meals be picked up and consumed at home and not congregated with others.

There may be future changes to this program, so please check back periodically for the most up-to-date information.
