Beginning June 9 and continuing through July 31, D60 will transition to its Summer Drive-Thru Meal program.

The Summer Drive-Thru Meal Program will operate similar to the current "grab-and-go" meal distribution format District 60 has conducted for the past two months.

D60 will provide meal kits to children age 18 and under on Tuesdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., adhering to proper social distancing standards during distribution. Three days' worth of meal kits, which includes breakfast and lunch, will be distributed.

Meals will be distributed at the locations listed below:
  • Bessemer Academy 1125 E. Routt Ave.
  • East High School 9 MacNeil Rd.
  • Heritage Elementary 625 Brown Ave.
  • Irving Elementary 1629 W. 21st St.
  • Pueblo Academy of Arts 29 Lehigh Ave.
  • Risley Middle School 625 Monument Ave.
  • South Park Elementary 3100 Hollywood Blvd.
Summer meals will also be offered to students attending the Pueblo Boys and Girls Club at the SRDA and Sprague club houses, the El Pueblo History Museum's summer program for children, and the YMCA's summer program for children.

Please note that meal service will be discontinued at Heaton Middle School beginning on June 8, and meals for senior citizens (60+) will end at all locations on June 30.

  • South Park Elementary June 15, June 29, and July 13
