17 curbside meal sites to close due to low participation

Low participation closes 17 school curbside meal sites

Nov. 24, 2020 – As a result of low or no participation, 17 curbside meal service school sites will close beginning Nov. 30.

Services at the closed site will shift to a nearby alternative school site that offers curbside meal service.

The change will enable the movement of food service workers from low need areas to critically high need areas.

Background – Since the onset of COVID-19, Duval County Public Schools has been operating curbside meal services at schools to allow students doing at-home learning to pick up a school lunch. While some sites have high participation, others have little. This has led to the closure of the 17 sites on Nov. 30, along with the closure of 29 sites in October.

View chart below to see the closing sites along with the alternative sites where meals are still being provided.
