Columbus City Schools Fuels Up students by providing free breakfast and lunch for the 2020-2021 school year.
At a Fuel Up! meal site, additional meals for children are served.
A Fuel Up! Grab and Go meal site is any CCS high school (excluding Columbus Downtown and Fort Hayes campus).
Families pick up 5-day meal packs every Wednesday at a Fuel Up! site at two times:
- 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Any child age 18 and under (including non-CCS student) can receive meals during one of these times at a meal site.
Families have the choice of two types of 5-day meal packs there:
- A shelf-stable meal pack that does not require refrigeration or heating, OR
- A fresh meal pack that includes refrigerated food items such as sandwiches, fruits, and vegetables.
CCS will operate all of its 18 Fuel Up! sites around the city unless staffing challenges force us to close sites.
If there is a reduction in staff due to leaves of absence or quarantine orders, the District will close some sites.
Advanced notification is provided for any site closures.
