• Grab and Go Meal Service

    CPS Grab-and-Go Meal Service

    Updated Routes and Information Effective November 16, 2020

    The fall and winter meal delivery service updates for students is listed below. Buses run multiple-stop routes Monday-Friday according to the school district calendar. Stops last a maximum of 15 minutes. Stops are not school-specific but rather designed regionally to include as many high-need areas as possible. Please find the stop closest to you and go there with your student at the designated time. 

    Students ages 2-18 can obtain a meal.  Adults may pick up meals for students who are unable to do so.  Adult meal pickups require student numbers or names.  If a child is not enrolled at CPS, we will need to know the child’s name. We ask that you practice social distancing while at the stop.  Masks are encouraged even while outside. Both breakfast and lunch will be packed as a Grab-and-Go bag. Students may select a sack meal that includes breakfast and lunch, one milk (per meal) and a fruit and/or vegetable. Meals contain some perishable and some non-perishable items. Please adhere to disposal and refrigeration instructions for perishable items.

    Due to the unpredictable nature of our governmental directives in this time of uncertainty and/or due to internal control that may have to be enacted, services may be forced to discontinue at a moment’s notice. We apologize in advance if we are forced to take this plan of action.   

    No change to route stops or times. Routes will continue as they have been based on the school calendar. Please note days of no service:

    Nutrition Services Holiday Hours
    In-person and Grab and Go meals provided by CPS Nutrition Services will not be available during the upcoming days when school is not in session and when school is closed for the Thanksgiving and winter breaks.  

    November 13 – Schools not in session – Teacher Workday
    November 25-27 - Thanksgiving Break
    December 23 – January 4 - Winter Break

    Grab and Go routes will end on Jan. 18, 2021. Virtual meal grab and go will move to select school locations and times to be announced in early January. 

    NOTE THERE ARE CHANGES TO ROUTE 6 STARTING DEC. 1.

    You can use this locator map to find your closest stop. Use the locator box in the bottom right to input your address. The default is for addresses to not include punctuation (for example PL for Place, DR for Dr.). Make sure to include Columbia.

    • As a reminder, the bus stops on the attached document (link) indicate the times and locations of food delivery.
    • All routes are updated. Times are estimated and may be delayed due to circumstances outside of the district's control. If you are unable to wait at the stop closest to you, you may go to the nearest school to receive meals.
