There are lots of families and people in our community that don’t have or aren’t able to get what they need. Especially now that grocery store shelves are bare, thanks to hoarding, many of our fellow Las Vegans didn’t get a chance to get the basic food necessities.
As we navigate this new territory of businesses closing and social distancing, we need to be aware of community resources put forth for those in need.
Here is a list of schools and other sites that are providing breakfast, lunch and various food distribution to our needy citizens. Many children don’t get the nourishment they need each day without heading to school, so CCSD is providing food for students at various locations around the city while schools are closed.
They have also listed many other sites all over town, school, churches, community centers giving food to anyone in need, not just students. Below is a list of sites you can visit with times and days that they are open. Most locations will serve only until food runs out, so plan ahead.
The Clark County School District will continue providing breakfast and lunch to students during the closure of our schools due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Student food distribution pods will be set up at 28 school locations throughout the district from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Monday through Friday. Meals are available for all children ages 2 -18. To locate a site near you, visit ccsd.nutrislice.com. Parents can also pick up academic resources in the near future at these sites.
Parents and guardians will now be able to pick up meals for their children without their child/children present. If your child has a school ID card, please bring it.
If a student ID card is not present then please be able to verbally provide the following information:
- Name(s) of students, Student Identification Number(s), School Location(s), Grade level(s) of students
The pickup location will be set up outside of the school sites to facilitate distribution.

If you know someone that might be in need, or know of students whose parents are still needing to be at work, please lend a hand if you are in a healthy population. Also, check in with neighbors that may be at risk and may not be able to get out for food necessities.
