District offering meals to go for students

The district is providing free meals for all students at distribution buses for youth 18 and younger

Last week, the state extended spring break for schools across the state. In an effort to feed students, the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District is offering daily meals at pickup locations districtwide.

The district is providing free “Get It & Go” breakfast and lunch meals for all students at food distribution buses for youth age 18 and younger.

To ensure the right amount of food is available, the district is encouraging parents and guardians to sign up online through the district’s website, www.kpbsd.k12.ak.us. Signing up can also be done over the phone at 907-714-8890.

Students can pick up their meals at 25 locations on the peninsula, which will be open daily from noon to 1 p.m. starting Tuesday. A student or the student’s ID must be present at the time of pick up. At each location, there will be a school bus, where staff will assist with the distribution of meals.

In the Kenai area, meals can be picked up at K-Beach Fire Station, Kaleidoscope School of Arts and Science, Kenai Central High School and Mountain View Elementary.

In Soldotna, pick up spots will be at K-Beach Elementary, Soldotna High School, Skyview Middle School, Soldotna Elementary School and Tustumena Elementary.

In Sterling, families can visit Sterling Elementary and the Sterling Highway Pullout at Milepost 80.5 to pick up meals.

In Nikiski, meals will be available at Nikiski Middle/High School, Nikiski North Star Elementary and North Peninsula Recreation.

On the eastern peninsula, meals can be picked up at Moose Pass School and Seward High School.

On the southern peninsula, families can stop by Chapman School, Mile 18.8 of East End Road at Basargin Road, Homer High School, McNeil Canyon School, Nikolaevsk School and Ninilchik School.

Across the water, meals can be picked up at Nanwalek School, Port Graham School and Tebughna School.

A press release about the food program from the district asks those who come to pick up the meals to protect personal health by practicing social distancing, frequent handwashing, covering coughs and sneezes and keeping a distance of 6 feet or more between others.

Questions about the distribution can be directed to district student nutrition services at 907-714-8890 or emailing dbuchanan@kpbsd.org.
