Pueblo D70 mobile food distribution begins

The Pueblo County School District 70 supper program, available to all D70 students, will be served at Liberty Point International and Vineland Middle School on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with pickup from 5 to 6 p.m.

Food service personnel will be handing out two days’ worth of breakfasts and lunches on those days.

“While this program was designed for remote learning families in mind, it is also available to all D70 students,” said food service director Brian Axworthy. “Since we don’t know how many families will take advantage of this program, food service will begin by making 200 meal bundles at each location, with production numbers adjusted based on need as we move forward.

"We hope that our remote learning families will take advantage of this option and we appreciate their patience as we worked to get everything in place.”

To service remote learners in the Mountain region, grab-and-go meal pickup is available Monday through Thursday at Rye High School, Rye Elementary School, Craver Middle School and Beulah School of Natural Sciences.

District officials ask that parents who need a meal contact the food service department at their child’s school to arrange a pickup time.

Those with questions can contact Axworthy at baxworthy@district70.org.
