BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Beginning Wednesday, March 25, Bay District School buses will deliver food via school bus to students during the COVID-19 outbreak.

According to district officials, school buses will begin limited bus route delivery of meals. Over the course of the next few days, school buses may be seen in neighborhoods. The buses will cary three pre-packaged meals for each school-aged chldren. To see where the routes will go, check Bay District Schools' website.

“We know that food instability is a real concern in our community and we’re committed to doing all we can to help ensure our students have enough to eat during this difficult time,” said BDS Superintendent
Bill Husfelt. “I can’t thank Chartwells and our Transportation team enough for the hard work they have put in to make these meals available both at the school sites that are open and now through bus
delivery.”

Meals are available at the school sites Monday-Friday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for all school-aged children regardless of their school of enrollment. The USDA requires that children be present to pick up meals but all school sites are configured “drive through style” and children do not have to get out of the vehicles to pick up food. All three meals are served at one time, packaged together, and children do not have to be accompanied by parents/guardians.

SCHOOL SITES: Bozeman, Breakfast Point, Cedar Grove, Hutchison Beach, Jinks, Lucille Moore, Lynn Haven, Mosley, Northside, Parker, Patronis, Rutherford, Southport, Tommy Smith,Tyndall and Waller.
