CCSD Serving Summer Meals

The Summer Food Service Program has been around and administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for many years. This will be the first year the school district is administering the program in conjunction with the Fallon Paiute-Shoshone Tribe and the Fallon Youth Club.

The program has extremely strict rules set by the USDA through federal law. Some of the rules were put in abeyance during the past two years due to the pandemic. These rules have returned. It is no longer possible to simply drop by, pick up food and take it away for off-site consumption. The district understands that having to eat on-site isn’t an ideal situation for many families but to serve the children of the community all of the USDA regulations must be adhered to.

In addition to having to eat on-site, only youth 18 years of age and younger are served free meals. Individuals 19 and older may not share any part of a child’s meal. If the youth’s sponsor has authorized it, a program participant can leave the site with either one piece of fruit, one vegetable, or one-grain item from their meal. If anyone participating in the program has a life-threatening allergy or disability that requires meal substitutions a statement from a recognized medical authority must be submitted that includes the required alternative food items.

The school administration appreciates the community's support with these rules so that children ages 0-18 in our community, who are the most in need, have access to hot and/or cold breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners during the summer months.
