PUEBLO — Pueblo School District 60 announced Tuesday that meal distribution will be reduced to Tuesdays and Fridays beginning April 10.

The district said the change is part of an effort to limit the exposure of nutrition workers, while continuing to help families.

"We just wanna make sure that our kids are fed and that we've taken that financial burden away from the families as much as we can," said Jill Kidd, Director of Nutrition Services for D60.

According to the district, two days of meals will be provided on Tuesdays and three days of meals will be provided on Fridays.

The district said each child will receive two meals in each meal bag, one breakfast and one lunch. The program is for the pick-up of meals only. They wil not be consumed on site.

D60 Nutrition Services will continue to distribute meals at eight drive-through locations from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The distribution sites will be set up outside in the parking lot or bus lane at each participating school. If you drive to the location, you are asked to stay in you car.

The following schools have been identified as free meal sites:
