CCSD Summer Bundle Meals Program: June 21-August 2, 2021

Our Summer Bundle Meals Program will operate from June 21 through the week of August 2. Our seven day bundle meals are available by pick up only at our six regional school locations. Pick-up days will vary at each school but the pick-up times will always be 11 am – 1 pm (more information on this coming soon).

Each bundle box will consist of seven breakfasts and seven lunches. Our breakfasts will be an assortment of shelf stable options and our lunches will be individually wrapped and frozen – products like calzones, French bread pizza, lunchable-style pizza kits and turkey/cheese/cracker kits, among other items. Some of the lunches will need to be simply thawed and served while others will need to be thawed and heated in a microwave or oven. We will provide cooking instructions. Fresh fruits, veggies and milk (upon request) will also be provided.

To help us finalize planning and logistics, please click this link to pre-register for your no-cost summer bundle meals. And, you can look for the first official summer bundles registration form the week of May 31 (which will be for bundle meals the week of June 21). Weekly registration will be required to pick up summer bundle meals.
