  • Oxnard School District continues to be committed to feeding children during the school closures. Child Nutrition Services is conducting meal distribution of  prepared meals, FREE of charge for community children. Meal distribution times for ALL eight (see below) locations are from 7:00am - 9:00am and from 5:00pm - 7:00pm. 

     

    Meal Distribution is scheduled twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00am - 9:00am and from 5:00pm - 7:00pm. Children do not need to be present during food pick up. USDA has updated regulations as of August 31, 2020 and  Family Meal Ticket are NO LONGER required. Please call Child Nutrition Services at 805-385-1501 ext. 2430 if you have questions or concerns.  

    Meals include breakfast, lunch, and supper staple foods. Staple items are based on availability.  Supplies are limited and all meals will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.  To provide meals to as many families as possible, sites may limit the number of boxes issued to each family.  

    There will be no congregate feeding; all food is to be taken and consumed offsite. For food safety purposes, all food taken off campus should be immediately stored in refrigeration until food is consumed.  Foods not consumed within 5 days should be discarded.    

    As a reminder, please observe social distancing and maintain a distance of 6 feet apart when waiting in line for meal bags.  While in the meal line, we highly encourage for everyone’s safety, that all people wear face covering over their nose and mouth.
