NKSD offering free lunches during school closures

Starting Wednesday, the North Kitsap School District will provide grab and go meals for all students for the duration of the school closures.

Meals will be available Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Kingston Middle School, Suquamish Elementary School, Port Gamble S’Klallam Youth Center, Poulsbo Middle School, Vinland Elementary and Hilder Pearson Elementary.

Meals will be free to every NKSD student and no registration is required. Meals will not be served during the week of spring break (April 6-10). Community partners are preparing a plan for that timeframe, according to an NKSD press release.

Grab and go meals will include both breakfast and lunch in a take-home bag. Students cannot stay at the school to eat them due to social distancing guidelines from state and local health agencies.
