FREE Meals and Curbside Food Pick-Up for ALL Students

Learn more about FREE meals for ALL children, ages 18 and younger, through curbside pick-up and at designated bus stops.

While children are learning from home, Centennial Schools will safely give out meals to children, ages 18 and younger, through curbside pick-up and at designated bus stops. 

This means everyone can have nutritious meals each day. Participating in meal pick-ups helps both families and our school. More participation means more kids eating nutritious foods and funding for our school’s nutrition program. 

We have expanded the food service,
so please stop by and pick up meals for your students!
