Summer Food Update 7.21.20

  • In order to ensure our meal program operates smoothly and maintains compliance with the Department of Health & Senior Services, we are making a few necessary adjustments. 

    Starting this Thursday, July 23:
    TUES & THURS
    Breakfast and Lunch pick up at Elementary, 3-5 cafeteria doors, 12:00pm-2:00pm

    Supper pick up at HS, kitchen door on the west side, around the corner from the concession window, 12:00pm-2:00pm

    Note consolidated locations/new times for evening pick ups:
         Enon Baptist Church, Pittsville  5:00p-5:30p
         Elm Commuter Lot, Kingsville  5:40p-6:10p
         Library, Holden  6:30p-7:00p

    Only breakfast and lunch will be available for pick up in the evening - supper meals will only be available for pick up at HS 12:00pm-2:00pm.

    If you are signed up for evening pick up and you would rather, you may pick up meals at the same time as produce boxes!

    A note on produce boxes: Due to construction at the middle school, produce boxes distribution has moved to the high school kitchen door (on the west side, around the corner from the concession stand area). The start time has been changed to 12:00pm and is still a first-come, first-serve program that will continue through Tuesday, August 18.

         If you have questions regarding the produce boxes, please contact Bright Futures at (816) 345-0269 or brightfutures@holdenschools.org.

Summer Food Update 5.23.2020

  • Summer meal distribution has begun! This week, over 1,800 meals have been prepped. The first week of produce boxes have gone out. We’re so thankful for our families and the organizations that make this summer food possible!
    We do have a change, and we think it will be one you will like - to accommodate families’ schedules, we are happy to announce that starting Tuesday, May 26, meals for the week will be offered for pick up on Tuesdays and Thursdays instead of daily. Only two days of pick up and you get 5 days of meals!

    Tuesday package: includes meals for Tuesday, Wednesday, and the Produce Box.
    Thursday package: includes meals for Thursday, Friday, and the following Monday.

    Due to low interest in the area, the La Tour location has been deactivated at this time. Arrangements have been made with the families who already signed up and indicated La Tour as their location. If we receive more requests wanting to pick up from the La Tour location, we will revisit this decision.

    Delivery locations and times:
    Holden Elementary Kitchen - 12:00-2:00pm
    Holden Library - 4:15-4:45pm & 7:20-7:35pm

Letter to Families 5.14.2020

  • Dear Holden families,

    Tomorrow, Friday, May 15, 2020, marks the end of our school year in a different fashion than ever before. Thank you for partnering with your child’s teachers to continue learning throughout this spring of uncertainty. While instructional supports will cease for this school year, meals will continue, for those who sign up, as we transition into our Summer Meal Program. Tentative plans for a potential Summer School in July are being considered as we monitor guidelines from state and county health officials and regulations from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. More information regarding Summer School will be sent to parents later in June.

    At Holden, The Summer Meal Program has offered FREE meals to all kids ages 0-18 for several summers. You will still be able to receive breakfast, lunch, and supper for your child(ren) daily on weekdays from Monday, May 18 through Friday, August 21, however delivery to bus stops is not approved for this program.  The following variety of times and locations will be available for you to drive through to pick up your meals.  All three daily meals will be distributed together at your chosen location.
