USD 417 Food Service has announced that it will be adding city route stops in addition to their drive-thru options at Council Grove Junior/Senior High School and Prairie Heights Elementary School starting on March 30. They will be using the city bus route stops that are already used in Council Grove, Alta Vista, Dwight, Dunlap, Wilsey and Delavan, with the hope of providing nutritious meals to even more children ages 1-18. Stops will be made in 15 minute increments to give ample time for meal pickup. The stops will run as drive-thru or walk up meals and will not be delivered directly to households and staff members will be practicing social distancing during the stops. Meals will still be available at CGJSHS and PHES at their normal times, but USD 417 has added this option for convenience to students and parents and to serve more children.
