Food for the summer
CCSD2 to hold free summer meal program
June 2, 2021
Food inequality is an issue that is faced by families throughout the country, whether they live in urban or rural settings. For many children, the only time they are able to get breakfast or lunch is when school is in session.
As of yesterday, Carbon County School District No. 2 (CCSD2) will be conducting a free summer meal program for children 18 years and under. There are no income guidelines and children do not have to be enrolled in any CCSD2 school to be able to receive free meals.
Parents or guardians of children can sign-up for free meals by visiting myschoolbucks.com. Anyone who would like meals for their non-enrolled children must sign-up the day before service to ensure that food is available due to time and supplies needed to make and hand out meals.
For Saratoga families, meals can be picked up from 11 a.m. to noon at the front entrance of Saratoga Middle/High School. Encampment families, meanwhile, can pick up their meals from 11 a.m. to noon at the front entrance of Encampment K-12 School.
In Medicine Bow, families can pick up meals from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Medicine Bow Elementary. Elk Mountain families can pick up meals from 11:30 a.m. to noon at Elk Mountain Elementary. Hanna families, meanwhile, can pick up meals from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Hanna Recreation Center.
