The PCLS Lunch Box Is Back With New Stop Added

IMPORTANT: Lunches must be eaten on site and cannot be taken away from the site. During inclement weather, the Lunch Box will not operate the route, but lunch will be served at Harvey High School cafeteria. Check the district website for announcements during bad weather for this location change. There will be no meal service on July 4.

This summer beginning Tuesday, May 30 through Friday, August 4 Painesville City Local Schools’ Nutrition Services Department is participating in a Mobile Summer Food Service Program. A food truck, also known as “The Lunch Box,” will be providing meals to all children ages 18 and under at no cost.

Meal menu can be found by clicking on the following link:

Meals will be provided Monday through Friday at the sites and times as follows:

Harvey High School 11:00-11:15AM
Chestnut Elementary (back lot) 11:30-11:45AM
Maple Elementary 12:00-12:15PM
State Street Park 12:30-1:00PM
Saint Mary’s Church 1:15-1:30PM
Elm Street Elementary (back lot) 1:45-2:00PM

In addition to The Lunch Box, the PCLS Curriculum Department is sponsoring the summer book swap program, also known as “The PCLS Book Box.” The Book Box will follow the Lunch Box each Tuesday and Thursday to all locations stated above (with the exception of Harvey) starting Tuesday, May 30 and running through Thursday, August 3. All students and parents may take home books to enjoy and swap back for more.

The Morley Library will partner with The Book Box so students can earn incentives for their summer program. Our own PCLS teachers will be driving The Book Box to connect with all students and families within our community. The YMCA and the Lake County Health District will also join The Lunch Box on certain days of the week to talk to students and families about healthy food choices and how to stay active.


What is SFSP?

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) ensures that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. This summer, USDA plans to serve more than 200 million free meals to children 18 years and under at approved SFSP sites.  You can find more information here:
