District Meal Service Shifts from Schools to Bus Routes

Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Thursday, March 26th, 2020

Based on the exceptional circumstances related to the public health emergency associated with COVID-19 and in response to the needs of our students, SCCPSS began offering free meals to our students this week during the mandated school closure.  In an effort to expand the distict's reach and better serve our families, SCCPSS will begin meal delivery by school bus.  Beginning Thursday, March 26, meals will be distributed to families at more than 400 bus stops across the county.   

On Thursday, meals for Thursday and Friday will be delivered by school bus.  Buses will not run on Friday, March 27.  While there is a “shelter-at-home" order in effect for the City of Savannah, families may proceed to the stops for the purpose of receiving food as an essential need.

SCCPSS Campus Police will provide security on board the bus and will offer traffic support as appropriate.  Motorists are encouraged to be alert on Thursday from 10am-12noon as school buses will be on the roadways and in the community making various stops to provide food for families.

Bus food delivery locations and stop times will be available and posted online by close of business Wednesday, March 25, 2020.
