Breakfast and Lunch Meal Program Update

As the school year comes to a close, so too does the District’s breakfast and lunch delivery program – the final day of deliveries will occur Friday, June 5, 2020.  We wish to thank the District staff members who have participated in the program – tracking registrations and delivery routing, preparing and labeling bags, packing meals, and delivering the meals to our students throughout Penns Valley.  We also wish thank our food service partner, The Nutrition Group, and their staff who prepared the meals for our students.  The success of this program would not have been possible without these dedicated individuals.

For families needing assistance, please be aware of the following community resources:
