Summer Meals Information:
This summer, the Clarke County School Nutrition program will provide meals to students and our community in three ways:
- Summer School: All schools in Clarke County will operate summer school programs. Students who attend summer school will be provided the opportunity to eat both breakfast and lunch during the school day at no cost. Summer school for middle & high school begins on Wednesday, June 2nd and ends on Wednesday, June 30th. Elementary summer school will begin on Monday, June 7th and end on Thursday, July 1st. Please note that summer school only operates Monday - Thursday.
- Summer Camp Lunch Service: We will partner with local camps offered through the YMCA, YWCO, and Athens Clarke County Leisure Services to provide lunches to their campers on Monday - Friday in June and July. Check with your child's camp to see if lunch will be provided at no cost.
- Curbside Meal Service: Four schools--Clarke Middle, Hilsman Middle, Whitehead Road Elementary, and Winterville Elementary--will be open for curbside meal pick up on Mondays and Thursdays, starting on Thursday, June 3rd. Parents and guardians of children up to age 18 are able to drive through one of these locations to pick up a bundle of meals. Each meal bundle will include three breakfast and three lunch meals. All meal items will be served cold, but they can be reheated at home. Meal bundles can be picked up between 9:00 - 10:00am on Mondays and Thursdays. The last day for curbside meal service will be Thursday, July 15th.

Frequently Asked Questions
This is a great question! During the school year, we usually have an entree that does not contain peanuts, which allows your student to make a safe and healthy choice at lunch. The summer menu is more streamlined because we are operating with fewer team members, so if you want your student to receive a meal accommodation, then you need to submit one to your child's summer school site. The form that is used by the school nutrition program can be found here: https://www.clarke.k12.ga.us/Page/2227
Due to the global pandemic, we will not have open sites where the public can come in to eat lunch with us. Instead, we will continue to offer curbside meal services at four locations: Clarke Middle, Hilsman Middle, Whithead Road Elementary, & Winterville Elementary. Families with children 18 and under can drive through any of these locations to pick up meals for free. There is no registration required. And, the children do not have to be enrolled in Clarke County School District to be eligible for these meals.
You are always welcome to send meals with your students when they come to school; however, just like during the normal academic year, we will be providing both breakfast and lunch meals to students enrolled in summer programs at our schools. The menu is simpler than during the school year, but your student will still have a choice of entree, fruit and vegetable sides as well as milk each day.
