Governor Announces Virtual and Online Learning Will Continue Through April 10th.
Dear Big Sky families,
Here is an update on our community food service program. Big Sky School District is currently not operating under the USDA implemented guidelines of feeding all school aged children up to age 18. Rather, we are operating under generous donations of various community organizations including Yellowstone Club Community Foundation, Spanish Peaks Community Foundation, Moonlight Community Foundation, and private donors that allow us to feed all who need lunch, not just school children. We continue to work closely with Big Sky Food Bank to increase food availability, not duplicate an existing service. It is BSSD’s pleasure to be able to continue to help feed a community of individuals, families, and children during this time.
Our new hours next week will allow us time to process foods for the Food Bank and still be able to provide lunch for those in need. Community can pick up a bagged lunch Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in front of The Warren Miller Performing Arts Center from 11am-1pm. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PICK UP MULTIPLE LUNCHES TO ALLOW FOR DAYS THERE IS NO PICK UP, FEEL FREE. Please e-mail email@example.com to pre-order for the day. It is EXTREMELY helpful in knowing how many lunches to prepare. If you need lunch delivered, please let us know and we can arrange it through our most impressive volunteers. As always, please be aware of the health and safety of customers, volunteers, and staff.
NEW HOURS: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 11am-1pm
LOCATION: Warren Miller Performing Arts Center Lobby
Also, here is some information for Big Sky Food Bank regarding the recent changes they have made to help accommodate our community.
• DRIVE-UP SERVICE – If you are in need of food, please visit the Big Sky Food Bank between 3-7 Tuesday & Thursday, 11-3 Wednesday & Friday. Be prepared to accept your food box by driving up to the patio area in front of the food bank, under the awning. Check-in will be a part of the drive-through service. This process should be quick.
• HOME DELIVERY FRIDAYS – Those quarantined, self-quarantined, and/or of suspicious health status will be allowed to order a food box dropped off to their home. Food box drops to homes will be done on FRIDAYS – we will leave the box outside your door and will not make any other contact with you
• VOUCHERS – We will be offering vouchers for produce, dairy and household necessities at local grocery stores. The parameters of this voucher will be forthcoming.
Stay safe, be kind, and be thankful we are in a community with such an abundance of outdoor activity to keep us sane, thank you Big Sky!
