CLEVELAND — To help provide meals for students in the city of Cleveland as families shift to remote learning, the Cleveland Metropolitan School District has expanded its meal service and is providing prepackaged breakfast and lunch options to all students in the city.

The meals are available to all students 18 years old and under, even those who don’t attend a CMSD school.

According to CMSD, families can choose from one two meal options listed below:

  • Parents or caregivers can pick up the meals for individual days from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at any K-8 school. Locations will be closed on Wednesday for cleaning.
  • Families can also stock up for the week by visiting most high schools from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesdays. The food service will not be available at the Lakeside Building (Cleveland High School for Digital Arts, Davis Aerospace and Maritime High School), John Hay Campus or MC2STEM locations.
