We are serving free meals to students through the last day of school, May 28th. Lunch and next day Breakfast will be available to all children 2-18 years of age that are physically present. These meals are handed to the children in a “to-go” model. Meal distribution will occur utilizing a curbside service model, Monday through Friday from 11am to 1pm at the following school sites:

Apple Valley High School: Solar Panel Lot Student Drop Off

Phoenix Academy: Lower Campus Parking Lot, Front of Cafeteria

Sitting Bull Academy: Lower Campus Student Drop Off

Rancho Verde: Student Drop Off Lane

Yucca Loma: Bus Area in front of Family Center

Please contact Nutrition Services at 760-247-8001 ext. 20214 if your child needs a meal accommodation at least 1 day prior to meal service. Nutrition Services will attempt to meet all meal accommodation needs.

Based on the San Bernardino County Public Health Department order, we ask that families who are using the drive up meal services please wear masks. This is to keep both you and your family safe, as well as those who are passing out meals. Thank you.
