No-cost meal service at PUSD available during summer break

Meals for students are offered three days a week at Alisal Elementary, Pleasanton Middle

Pleasanton Unified School District is offering no-cost meal service to families in need in July and August, as well as the rest of this month. The district was recently approved to continue serving meals via the federal meal program Seamless Summer Option for the remainder of summer.

June meal service will end on Monday (June 29); according to child nutrition services coordinator Kelsey Perusse, "We are going to do a 3-day pack out on the 29th to give families as much as we can before we take a brief break" while their kitchen undergoes some repairs.

Service will resume July 13 and end August 7, right before the new school year starts on August 11. No-cost meals for all children under the age of 18 will be offered for pick-up at Pleasanton Middle and Alisal Elementary on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Alameda County Community Food Bank has committed to delivering groceries so Grocery Fridays will continue as well. No meal application is required and children do not need to be present.
