Schools may officially be closed until April 30 at the earliest, but Banning Unified School District wants its families to know that brunches will still be served to its students.
According to Reanna Liversage, district nutrition technician, food service at three school sites and two additional pickup locations is being paid for through the California Department of Education’s Seamless Summer feeding program.
It is not summer, but the program has received flexibility in light of the coronavirus situation, Liversage explains. Further, the program typically requires a congregate-type of setting, where kids can sit together. That component also has flexibility, and the district is providing each student with a bag of grab-and-go breakfast and a separate bag of grab-and-go breakfast and a separate bag with lunch.
