UPDATED Meal Delivery For School Closure

UPDATED Meal Delivery For School Closure
Food Delivery

New HCS Food Locations Open Today (04/15)
Targeted bus delivery will streamline routes and stops

Food locations are expanding to 21 school sites across the county, and targeted bus delivery will streamline routes and stops. The Hamilton County Schools cafeteria locations will provide food pick-up from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday each week. You do not need to enter the school cafeteria. The food is available as curbside service at the school locations and includes breakfast and lunch for two days. Food is free to any child 18 and under at sites and bus stops. It is a federal requirement the district must follow that children accompany an adult to a food pick-up location or bus stop to receive free meals.

The school locations in Hamilton County Schools for food pick up are:

Opportunity Zone
Clifton Hills Elementary
East Lake Elementary
Hardy Elementary
Orchard Knob Elementary

Targeted bus service with streamlined delivery locations will also begin today. The bus stops are located on the morning elementary routes buses normally run. Routes will start at 11 a.m., and buses should complete food delivery by 1 p.m. Buses will also run on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The bus routes will be specific to a bus number, but the actual bus will not be the vehicle that runs the food delivery route. Look for a smaller bus to deliver food each day. The smaller buses will make the food delivery service more efficient and easier to maneuver in neighborhoods.
