PUSD Meals At No Cost Service

UPDATE AS OF APRIL 6: We are constantly evaluating our Meals at No Cost Service program in order to create the most efficient manner in delivering these meals to the community.

Beginning on Monday, April 6, we will be consolidating the following sites:

Harmony Magnet Academy will be moved to Strathmore High

Pioneer Middle School will be moved to Vandalia Elementary

Belleview Elementary will be moved to Bartlett Middle

Sequoia Middle will be moved to Westfield Elementary

Citrus High will be moved to Los Robles Elementary

We have also added a new outgoing route (Route 7).

Thank you for your patience. We will keep you updated on any further changes. 

Beginning March 23rd, Porterville Unified School District (PUSD) will provide meals at no cost to children ages 1-18 at selected PUSD elementary, middle, and high school locations from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. This “Grab-N-Go” service will offer both drive-thru and walk-up stations providing both a lunch meal and a breakfast meal for the next morning. In addition, PUSD will be offering meal pickup at various outlying locations (please see locations and arrival times below).

Each child must be present in order to pick up a “Grab-N-Go” lunch and breakfast meal to eat at home. Children need to eat their Lunch meal or refrigerate them within 30 minutes of pickup. This includes refrigerating breakfast meals for the following day. 

Meals for students with special dietary needs are available at Student Nutrition Services located at 900 W. Pioneer Ave., between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m., Monday-Friday or contact them at 559-782-7062.
