List | JCPS, Oldham Co. Schools have plans to provide lunch to students when schools close

Students can go to one of the sites in the district to get lunch. Here's the list.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — JCPS has a plan in place for feeding students despite school closures through April 5.

“We will implement the USDA Summer Food Service Program,” Julia Bauscher, the JCPS Executive Administrator of School and Community Nutrition Services, said.

The district will distribute meals to any students under 18 at one of 45 sites. Those sites can be found here.

About 67% of JCPS students get lunch at school right now.

“Sometimes the meals we provide the students are the only meals that they get during the day,” Bauscher said. “So we want to make sure good nutrition is available to them when they’re not in school.”

District leaders throughout our area are making plans and consistently monitoring the status of the virus. But everyone we talked to said they are prepared for anything.

“We could sustain this throughout the remainder of the school year,” Bauscher said.

School is expected to resume April 6. Pollio said the last day of school will be June 11, but JCPS will ask lawmakers to forgive days missed due to coronavirus.

The Oldham County School district also released an emergency feeding plan for children 18 and under in the district.

Monday through Friday a to-go breakfast and lunch will be provided. Call 502-241-3513 by 9 a.m. to request meals, and pick up between the hours of 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Meals are meant to be consumed off site.
