Free Meals For ALL Children 18 And Under

  • Spring Break Food Service Update: Food service will be closed for Friday, April 10 through Tuesday April 14, reopening Wednesday, April 15.  CCS will provide additional meals (an additional three breakfasts and three lunches) on the Thursday before break (April 9).


    During the extended canceling of classes (through Friday, April 3), CCS will offer meals for ALL children age 18 and under, Monday through Friday.

    The meals will be "grab and go" style, and kids will also be able to pick up lunch at breakfast, or pick up the next day's breakfast at lunch. Also, per federal regulations, children 18 and under must be in attendance in order to pick up food. We are working with elected officials in an attempt to modify this, and we will update our website and social feeds if this does change.

    Please see below for more information and a map of locations (translated versions available below as well).

COTA - Transportation Maps

  • All children traveling to one of our CCS distribution sites ride COTA for free. Below, or linked here, is a map of each site and the corresponding COTA line.

    MARCH 19, 2020 UPDATE: COTA announced that ALL transit is free for all children and adults during the COVID-19 pandemic. The below flyer is outdated in stating that only school students ride for free, but the information about which lines get to which food service site remains accurate. Again, all fares for COTA are now waived for everyone during this pandemic.

    MARCH 20, 2020 UPDATE: Beginning Monday, March 23, Dominion Middle School in the Clintonville area has been added as a 15th food site. The below flyer is also outdated in this regard. Please see above for an updated full map and list of timeframes.
