Okeechobee County School District adds new meal drop off sites

OKEECHOBEE — Beginning on Monday, March 30, additional lunch drop-off sites will be added by the Okeechobee County School Food Service Program and the Transportation Department.

Following, you will find a list of stops, including locations and times for each.

The first stop on every bus route is food pick-up at Okeechobee High School to load the buses and head to the areas.

The second stop for each bus begins the meal drop-off stops.

Buses will feed every student at the location then leave for the next stop.

Please be there at the stop time; the bus will not wait.

Bus arrival times may vary depending on how many are at the locations.

Please be sure to leave the area after receiving meal(s).

Loitering or leaving trash will not respect the kindness these individuals or groups have shown to our students!

This project has taken a coordinated effort of countless individuals to illustrate the love and commitment for students of #ChobeeSchools.
