Comstock schools to deliver meals to students

The district is providing food for students who may otherwise miss out on meals.

Comstock Public Schools (CPS) got back into session on Monday. Like many other districts, classes are all online for at least the beginning of the school year.

That’s a problem for the 80% of Comstock students who qualify for free or reduced price meals at school.

Fortunately, starting Tuesday the district will provide breakfasts and lunches for any CPS student who needs them.

Unlike Kalamazoo Public Schools, which is also distributing food to students, CPS will actually bring the food to the student. CPS buses will deliver food along eight bus routes throughout the district.

Students, or a family member, can also pick up food from from Comstock High School from 5 to 6pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
