2020 School Closure Lunch Program

2020 School Closure Lunch Program
Posted on 03/14/2020
2020 School Closure Lunch ProgramComstock Public Schools will continue to offer meals as part of the Unanticipated School Closure (part of the Summer Food Program).

Each of the sites will be distributing free meals to any child in Kalamazoo County aged 18 or younger, as well as any special needs adults aged 26 or under who are part of an educational program.

We will be distributing multiple meals on Tuesday (3 breakfasts & lunches) and Friday (4 breakfasts & lunches). Distribution will be either by drive-in or walk-up service, and any adult or child may pick up the free meals. You do not have to be a student of Comstock Schools to participate in the meal pickup.

Because of this emergency closure some of the rules regarding this meal distribution have been relaxed. The meals must be taken home to be eaten and there is no eating at the sites.

All sites will be operating on Tuesday and Friday starting on April 3.

Families should be prepared for a large quantity of food and milk, so it will be wise to bring a laundry basket, box, wagon, etc.

We are also offering hot dinners on Thursdays. These meals will be available for PICK UP ONLY at Comstock High School ONLY every Thursday from 4:30-5:00 p.m., or until we run out of dinners. 

One dinner will be hot and and ready to eat, and the other dinner will have reheating instructions (2 dinners...hot today / heat for tomorrow) Each dinner will be served with chocolate milk, and we will also be giving out two snacks!

The menu will change each Thursday.

If we run out, we run out, but we will continue to make adjustments.

Comstock Families are also eligible to receive additional funds through the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program.
