As Santa Clarita Valley students remain home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the William S. Hart Union High School District will continue to provide school lunches to students on a “grab-and-go” basis.

Chief Business Officer Ralph Peschek sent the following note to parents and guardians of Hart District students:

Dear Parents or Guardians of the Santa Clarita Valley,

Many students and families rely on school meals during the school week. As a result of recent school closures here in our valley, daily access to that resource has been interrupted. In an effort to provide meal access, the William S. Hart Union High School District and Santa Clarita Valley School Food Service Authority have coordinated to provide Free lunches across our community.

These meals are funded by the USDA and are FREE to kids and teens ages 18 and younger at meal sites across the Santa Clarita Valley.

In order to accommodate current CDC guidance to maintain social distancing, these sites will offer grab and go meals. These sites will not provide areas for students to eat school lunches.

Free Meal Program Details

–  Meals are FREE to children and teens ages 18 and younger who come to a meal site

–  Food served is healthy and follows USDA nutrition guidelines

–  No application or proof of income needed. You can just bring your child to the meal site in your community

–  Children must be present and must claim the meals.

The William S. Hart Union High School District and its partners at Sodexo School Services will provide three weeks of meal service, Monday through Friday, beginning Monday, March 23and ending on Friday, April 10th.

Drive-up lunch services will be provided from noon to 1 p.m. at the following locations during school days (Monday to Friday). One bagged/boxed lunch per child (18 years and younger) will be provided.

–  Rancho Pico Junior High School- 26250 W. Valencia Blvd., Stevenson Ranch, CA 911381

–  Rio Norte Junior High School – 28771 Rio Norte Dr., Santa Clarita, CA 913354

–  La Mesa Junior High School – 26623 May Way, Santa Clarita, CA 91351

“With the current challenges our community is facing as a result of the recent school closure, we feel it is important to provide continuity to students across the valley,” Peschek said.

“We are opening these three meal sites in coordination with the elementary districts to assure that there is, at a minimum, one meal site in each Junior High School and High School attendance area,” he said. “The Hart District has elected to keep serving meals at these three locations through spring break to assure these resources don’t disappear before we can return until our students can return to their schools and normal routines.”

Questions regarding any of the three sites sponsored by the Hart District? Contact us at 661-753-5750 or whunter@hartdistrict.org or kturner@hartdistrict.org.

School Day Café, sponsored by the Santa Clarita School Food Service Authority, will offer meals at the following locations and dates:

One bagged/boxed lunch per child (18 years and younger) will be provided.

    It’s actually called….

    Santa Clarita Valley School Food Services Agency
    …not “Service Authority”.

    Frankly, the Hart District years ago should have eliminated the redundancies in managing/operating their student food service program by joining and a board member of the food services agency.

    If the Hart District were to join the local food services agency, it would reduce the costs to the district, and potentially increase their rebates received by combining/consolidating the purchasing power by all 5 local school districts – this way – saving the taxpayers money!

    Gee…what a concept! Saving the taxpayers money!!

      We didn’t write it. It was written by the SCV Food Service (singular) Agency, which is a joint powers “authority.” If they want to call themselves the SCV Food Service Authority, who are we to argue?
