Since the closing of schools due to the COVID-19 health emergency, Collier County Public Schools (CCPS) has been offering free meals to children at more than 50 school campuses and mobile sites throughout the community. The effort is extremely important to all involved. It alleviates child hunger and allows for our students to be eager and prepared for learning.
With summer beginning, it is important for families to know that the Nutrition Services department at CCPS plans to continue its free distribution of healthy, nutritious meals to children through Summer BreakSpot, which is part of the national Summer Food Service Program. Beginning June 8, CCPS grab and go meal distribution sites will be open Monday through Friday from 10am-1pm at the following sites. We will continue serving weekend meals on Friday.

"To Serve Every Student with Excellence as the Standard"
For those parents and students constantly on the go, we have it covered. Using the Apple Store for iPhones and Google Play for Androids, the app School Lunch by MEAL VIEWER can be downloaded for free. This app works similarly to the website as a specific school and menu are selected and food images, nutrition and allergen information are provided. Also within the app you can find announcements and upcoming events. Surveys will also be appearing frequently, allowing for feedback from students, parents and staff. This feature will allow the Nutrition Services Department to have firsthand information to better meet customers’ needs and requests.”
