A Message from Communications and Community Relations
We are sending this message to families on School Messenger today via email and phone. Dr. Baker and Isabel Meeker will be sending phone calls home to families. The press release is posted here on our website.
Bellingham Public Schools’ after-school dinners have begun for the new school year. We’re excited to offer free hot meals to all children under 18. Please note that accompanying adults are charged $4.
These meals are offered at Shuksan Middle School in their cafeteria on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from September 19 through June 10, 2014. Dinner is served from 5 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Providing healthy meals and snacks is part of our collective commitment to the children in our community, ensuring they have the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow. Offering this program promotes healthy, active individuals and supports the whole child as outlined in The Bellingham Promise.
The after-school dinner program is sponsored by the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
