Caddo is ramping up its feeding efforts by launching its Summer Food Service Program on Monday.
Meals will be provided to all eligible children without charge. Acceptance and participating requirements for the program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, age or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity in any program or activity conducted or funded by USDA, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.
Continuing the work launched in March to provide access to nutritious meals throughout the pandemic, Caddo will host 15 sites each Monday beginning at 8:30 a.m. and continuing through 11:30 a.m. During those times, families can arrive at pickup locations to receive five breakfast and 5 lunch meals for the week. Social distancing and safety precautions will be in place in order to protect students and staff.
Sites participating in the Summer Food Service Program include:
- Blanchard Elementary School
- Booker T. Washington High School
- C.E. Byrd High School
- Caddo Heights Elementary School
- Caddo Middle Career and Technology School
- Caddo Parish Magnet High School
- Captain Shreve High School
- Creswell Elementary School
- Fair Park Middle School
- Huntington High School
- Keithville Elementary/Middle School
- North Caddo Elementary/Middle School
- Northside Elementary School
- Southern Hills Elementary School
- Youree Drive Middle School
Service will continue weekly through June 30.
Sites were determined based on accessibility for students and families. Sites previously used during the pandemic not used for the summer program were discontinued as Caddo begins Board-approved construction projects at district sites.
In accordance with Federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) civil rights regulations and policies, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, and reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity. (Not all prohibited bases apply to all programs.)
