Columbus City Schools Fuels Up students by providing free breakfast and lunch for the 2020-2021 school year.
A Fuel Up! Grab and Go meal site will be assigned to each student by the nearest location to the student's home address.
Families pick up a 5-day meal pack every Wednesday at two times:
- 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Any child age 18 and under can receive meals during one of these times at a meal site.
Families will have the choice of two types of 5-day meal packs:
- A shelf-stable meal pack that does not require refrigeration or heating, OR
- A fresh meal pack that may include refrigerated food items such as sandwiches and fresh fruits and vegetables.
CCS will continue to operate all of its 44 Fuel Up! sites around the city unless staffing challenges force us to close sites.
If there is a reduction in staff due to leaves of absence or quarantine orders, the District will close some sites.
Advanced notification will be provided for any site closures.
