SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – The Salt Lake City School District (SLCSD) is partnering with the Utah Food Bank to provide a shelf-stable Kids Café Dinner at 15 designated school sites.

The additional meals will be served as part of the district’s “Grab and Go” meal service during the hours of 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 pm on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, according to the district.   

The Salt Lake City School District provides a “Grab and Go” meal service at designated school sites for children to receive breakfast and lunch each weekday during the COVID-19 school closures. This is done in a “Lunch Today, Breakfast Tomorrow” style, where students receive a sack lunch to be eaten day of and a sack breakfast, which can be refrigerated and eaten the next day.

In addition to receiving breakfast and lunch, at the 15 designated school sites, the district says children may now also receive a sack dinner on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The program will start Wednesday, April 1. 

To help ensure safety, all meals will be prepared, packaged and delivered by SLCSD staff directly to a family’s vehicle. For those without a vehicle, the district says walk-up service is also available.

Special meal requirements can be accommodated upon request. Those with meal accommodation are asked to contact registered dietician, Brianna Hardisty, to determine site locations and make additional arrangements as needed at Brianna.Hardisty@slcschools.org
