Updates to MNPS Student Meal Service
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 25, 2020) – Metro Nashville Public Schools have updated their bus routes and school pickup locations for breakfast and lunch meal delivery for children under the age of 18 in Nashville. Children do not have to be students at MNPS or provide documentation, but they do need to be present in order to collect the meals.
Details for all locations can be found on the map at https://www.mnps.org/covid19
In addition to the 15 school locations previously announced, MNPS will be delivering food from Joelton Middle School at 3500 Old Clarksville Highway from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on weekdays while schools are closed.
Timing for nearly all locations has been adjusted based on real-time data collected over the first three days of meal distribution, in addition to newly added locations to existing bus distribution routes.
The following locations have been added to the routes:
- Warrior Road & Mallow Drive, Nashville, TN 37115
- 5515 Scruggs Lane, Nashville, TN 37207
- 2400 Buena Vista Pike, Nashville, TN 37218
- 15180 Old Hickory Blvd, Nashville, TN 32711
- Hickoryview Drive & Hickory Plaza, Nashville, TN 37211
- Warner Elementary, 626 Russell St, Nashville, TN 37206
- Robert Churchwell Elementary, 1625 Dr DB Todd Jr Blvd, Nashville, TN 37208
One drop-off location, Murfreesboro Pike and Millwood Drive, was removed due to overlap with the Metro Action Commission.
Nearly 7,000 meals were provided to students on Monday and Tuesday of this week. The meals are provided through the Seamless Summer Options (SSO) federally funded program. The meals are prepared in three preparation kitchens at Overton High, Cane Ridge High, and Haynes Middle School by MNPS nutrition services staff and delivered at school locations and through the transportation division at stops around the city. Locations were chosen based on federal guidelines for neighborhoods or schools with more than 50 percent of students identified as economically disadvantaged. Meals will continue to be offered every weekday that school facilities are closed.
