PUEBLO — Starting June 9 through July 31, District 60 schools will transition to their Summer Drive-Thru Meal program.

According to D60, the Summer Drive-Thru Meal program will be similar to their current "grab-and-go" meal distribution that has been in place the last few months due to COVID-19. D60 will be providing meal kits to students 18 and under Tuesdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., following social distancing guidelines. Both days will distribute three days worth of meals, including breakfast and lunch.

Meals will be distributed at these locations:

Bessemer Academy 1125 E. Routt Ave. East High School 9 MacNeil Rd.
Heritage Elementary 625 Brown Ave. Irving Elementary 1629 W. 21st St.
Pueblo Academy of Arts 29 Lehigh Ave.
Risley Middle School 625 Monument Ave.
South Park Elementary 3100 Hollywood Blvd.

"Summer meals will also be offered to students attending the Pueblo Boys and Girls Club at the SRDA and Sprague club houses, the El Pueblo History Museum's summer program for children, and the YMCA's summer program for children," according to the release.

Meal service will end June 8 at Heaton Middle School, and June 30 at all locations for senior citizens (60+).

Pantries have been created at South Park and Irving elementary schools with help from Care and Share Pueblo. Any family in need can visit these pantries between the hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the dates listed below:

South Park Elementary June 15, June 29, and July 13
Irving Elementary June 22, July 6, and July 20
