Starting on Monday, April 6th, KCKPS will allow parents to pick up curbside meals WITHOUT a child in the car. In order to take part in this service, you will need to call and notify a KCKPS representative of the time and location you plan to pick up your meal. Adults are asked to place their order at least the day before pickup. Additional information will be asked during that call.
What is the number?
KCKPS families can start using the number on Wednesday, April 1st to reserve a meal/meals without a child present. Remember the service starts on April 6th.
What if I don’t call ahead, can I still pick up a meal?
Yes, our sites will still be open to KCKPS students 18 and younger. Adults will need to have their children present if they do not call ahead.

How are families able to get a meal who do not have transportation?
We are always reviewing alternative options to providing our students easier access to receive meals. However, due to the local and state orders listed below, we are limited on our options to disseminate food.
- Stay-at-Home order in effect until Thursday, April 23, 2020
- No public gatherings of more than 10 people
- Social distancing protocol
Due to the orders listed above, we are not allowed to deliver meals.
Why hasn’t KCKPS considered a bus stop delivery service to students?
Due to the size of our school district and the participated number of students and families gathering at each stop we could potentially violate the local Stay-at-Home order which prevents large gatherings of more than 10 people.
Why can’t we allow groups to pick-up meals for students who don’t have transportation or live too far to walk to a meal pick up location?
Due to regulations by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), meals can only be distributed to a child between the ages of 1 to 18. Every child receiving the meal must be present at the time of distribution.
