SDUSD Meal Distribution: SDUSD Food Services Meal Pick Up

Starting the week of April 20, the district will launch the “7 Meals in 5 Days Plan,” which expands grab-and-go meal distribution to help cover student nutrition needs over weekends. The district will distribute one extra breakfast and one extra lunch each Thursday and Friday of the week. That allows each child to receive two breakfasts and two lunches on these days.

The first day of weekend lunch distribution will be Thursday, April 23. On Thursday, April 30, the district will add breakfast, along with lunch, to the weekend meal distribution.

Distance Learning SDUSD: Let us continue our appreciation and patience with our Holmes staff as we transition from "soft launch" to full implementation of distance learning. See the SDUSD Distance Learning Brochure
