PORTALES (KSEL)- With Schools coming to an end, the Grab and Go meal programs through the schools in the area will be passing the torch to the La Casa Summer Food Service Program.
Like every summer, the La Casa Summer Food Service Program will begin to serve breakfast and lunch to all children 18 years of age and under. They will serve meals from every school site in Portales and specific school sites in Clovis between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 12:00 noon.
La Casa will begin the program in the following areas on the following dates:
- May 21, in Clovis
- May 22 in Texico
- May 26 in Portales and Melrose
Families are to pick up meals and immediately return to vehicles or remain in their vehicles for Grab and Go operations.
The La Casa Summer Food Service Program is separate from the schools and for the first time you go to pick up meals, you will need to take every child in your household who wishes to receive a meal to the meal site. You will receive a card at that time that provides for how many eligible children you have in the family, and after that, you will only need to provide the card to their staff and pick up the meals. Your children will not have to be present after you receive your card.
