CCSD expands summer meal program

Healthy school lunch Cherry Creek Schools is expanding its summer meal program to more locations so more students will have the opportunity to enjoy a healthy, hot lunch this summer. Summer meals are available for free to students from any district who are 18 and younger. Adults can also purchase meals for just $4.

The CCSD Summer Meal program is expanding from one to three locations. It will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on weekdays between May 29 and July 26, at Overland High School, Horizon Community Middle School and Meadow Point Elementary School. The program will be closed on Thurs., July 4 for the Independence Day holiday.

“It is so rewarding to keep kids fueled up over the summer so they are ready to learn when school starts again in August,” said Kim Kilgore, director of Food and Nutrition Services for Cherry Creek Schools. “Our Food and Nutrition Services department has partnered with our Health Services, Extended Childcare Services and Wellness teams to promote the program and reach as many students as possible this summer. Our staff can’t wait for the program to begin and so they can serve up a healthy, hot lunch while getting to know our communities!”  

So join Cherry Creek Schools this summer and let’s do lunch!
