Free Food Program For Kids Extended Again

Kids will be able to get breakfast and lunch for free during the rest of the 2020-2021 school year.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced another extension, allowing the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) to continue to operate through June 30, 2021.

Who Can Get Free Meals

Anyone between the ages of 1-18 can receive the meals. Parents are allowed to pick up lunches without children. Please understand this is really for any child and parents are not taking away from another family. This is to help all families during this pandemic. Even if families would not normally qualify for free or reduced lunches, the school will still provide these meals at no cost.

How To Get The Free Meals

School districts like Riverside, Mary Walker, Loon Lake, and Deer Park will all have different ways in which to receive the meals, even if the kids are remote, or homeschooled. 

Deer Park and Riverside will have breakfast and lunch grab’n’go meals served at the following school curbside locations on regularly scheduled school days between 12:00pm and 12:30pm

Riverside School District

Chattaroy Elementary School, 25717 N Yale Rd

Riverside High School, 4120 E Deer Park-Milan Rd

Deer Park School District

Deer Park Middle School, 347 S Colville Rd. where pick up is now on the south side of the building by the gym entrance. 

On Friday Deer Park provides additional meals for kids to cover for Saturday and Sunday breakfasts and lunches.  

Please be aware that operations are subject to change, so contact your local school if you have any questions about how this program is being implemented in your area.

Christmas Cavalcade

Youngsters and their parents began arriving at Legacy Farm and Stable early on December 19th to decorate horses. They came from a wide area over Stevens and Spokane counties. Once all 15 steeds had been decked in their festive best, the cavalcade (formal procession) departed the stable. Taking a route often used for the trail riding program at Legacy Farm and Stable, then crossing Highway 292, the group proceeded to Colville Road. There the caroling began. An advance team went ahead on an ATV to knock on doors and let people know the riders were coming. Many residents were excited to come stand outside in the cold and take pictures and sing along.
