• Council Bluffs Community School District

    The Council Bluffs Community Schools Nutrition Services Department will provide an opportunity for families to drive through or walk up to pick up meals for their families at a number of school sites. The following schools will provide both lunch for the day and breakfast for the following day. Meals will be distributed between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm in the front of each school building. Please stay in your car and wait for the meals to be brought to your car and passed through the window. You will be given a number of meals based on the number of children in the car ages 1-18.
