Dinner is served! Child Nutrition provides free meals to CVUSD students
On Wednesday and Thursday evenings CVUSD’s Parent Outreach Program provides free tutoring for students in grades K-5. This program provides academic enrichment and support to CVUSD families, and thanks to a new partnership from the District’s Child Nutrition Department it now also includes free dinner for student attendees.
The partnership kicked off this past December and the complimentary meals are comprised of sandwiches, chips, fruit, cookies, and milk.
“We are very proud to have the opportunity to support our students with nutritious meals as they pursue their studies after the traditional school day ends,” said Virginia Beck, CVUSD’s Director of Child Nutrition.
On Wednesdays the program is hosted at the Bridges Charter School campus (1335 Calle Bouganvilla, Thousand Oaks) beginning at 5:30pm. On average 115 meals are served every Wednesday.
On Thursdays the program is hosted at the Conejo Elementary School campus (280 N. Conejo School Road, Thousand Oaks) beginning at 5:30pm. On average 80 meals are served every Thursday.
Beginning February 11, 2019 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays meals from the CVUSD’s Child Nutrition Department will also be served to participants of the Thousand Oaks Library’s “Read to Succeed” program.
This new meal program from the District’s Child Nutrition Department is supported by the USDA Child and Adult Care Meal Program.
Students that attend CVUSD’s Parent Outreach Program’s free tutoring are referred by their teachers. While students attend tutoring, the Parent Outreach Program also offers parents/guardians English as a second language, and parenting classes at no cost to those that are interested (at Conejo Elementary and Bridges Charter School).
