WEEKLY MEAL SERVICE PROGRAM
Beginning the Week of March 30, 2020, the Cameron Parish School Board will serve meals only ONCE per week. Meals may be picked up on Tuesdays from 2:00 – 3:30 pm
in the following communities:
 
Grand Lake Fireman Center
Creole Fire Station
Cameron Public Library
Johnson Bayou Recreation Center
Hackberry Community Center
 
Each child will receive 4 breakfasts, 4 lunches, milk, and juice. If there are any changes to times or locations, the CPSB will notify the public.

The School Nutrition Program hopes to continue to provide meals to the children of Cameron Parish while still protecting our employees. Reducing the program to one day per week will hopefully allow us to do both. Any questions should be directed to Dr. Holly Castile at holly_castile@camsch.org.

The Office of Emergency Preparedness (OEP) will provide assistance to the CPSB by distributing the meals at each location.

**Instructions for safe food handling will be included with the meals

As a district we are working to implement a meal service for ALL students in our parish. This service will be for all children 18 years of age and younger regardless of the school/school system in which the child is enrolled. In addition, overage students enrolled in public K-12 schools, including students with disabilities through age 22, are eligible for the free meals at open sites. Children's meals must be counted and claimed by the school site that served the meal. Your child does NOT have to receive free or reduced lunches to qualify. In order for us to plan, we would like for you to complete the following survey by 8:00 AM, Tuesday, March 17, 2020.
