School meals to be delivered to Waitsburg children


April 16, 2020

WAITSBURG—The Waitsburg School District began serving sack breakfast and lunches following Governor Jay Inslee’s mandatory school closure in March. Originally the service had designated areas around Waitsburg for families to pick up meals, however, the district has decided to make changes to help further prevent the spread of the COVID-19 disease. Starting April 20, the school district will bring meals directly to the doorstep of each student’s home.

The meal pick-up has been well-attended by students. Food service supervisor Susan Wildey estimates that they have been serving nearly 260 meals a day with the pickup service, and hopes to continue the success with the new safer delivery method. Delivering meals straight to homes will discourage kids from gathering, ultimately helping flatten the COVID-19 data curve.

Parents will need to fill out a delivery sign up form, which can be found at the Waitsburg School District website, Meals are available for all Waitsburg children under 18.
