KCPS ‘Meals On the Bus’ Program Starts Aug. 25
Kansas City, August 24, 2020: Kansas City Public Schools will start distributing free-of-charge meals for students across the district by bus on Tuesday, Aug. 25.
Breakfasts and lunches will be delivered by a fleet of school buses from about 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday to approximately 190 different stops. These nutritious meals will be available for any KCPS student at any of these school bus stops.
A KCPS student ID number will need to be provided for each meal. Individual students do not need to be present at the bus stops to receive the meals.
The meal delivery stops are no more than a quarter-mile apart in order to ensure easy access for all KCPS families. Buses will distribute meals for 10 minutes at each stop before continuing on their routes.
This KCPS student meal distribution program is being run by the Department of Child Nutrition Services in cooperation with the Transportation Department. The program is designed to help meet the nutritional needs of students during distance and virtual learning from home. KCPS staff delivered snacks and flyers on Monday, Aug. 24 to each stop in order to promote this program.
