UPDATED - Food Distribution for the Children of Nye County

March 19, 2020

Nye County School District began offering food to students/children of Nye County Wednesday, March 18th.  We are providing both breakfast and lunch to every student/child 18 years of age and under.  We are using existing bus stops and also offering centralized distribution, see chart below. 

Because the purpose behind school closures is to limit congregating, we recommend that family groups stay together and apart from other groups.  Since we are not sure how long it is going to take, be prepared to stay at the stop until the bus arrives. It could be a 30-45 minute wait. 

Federal regulations require the student/child be present to receive breakfast and lunch. 

Please feel free to use ANY bus stop. If you miss distribution at a bus stop, you may go to a site for meal pickup, see chart below for locations and times.
