Many Central Oregon School Meal Sites Re-Open Starting Monday

After more limited locations during spring break, offerings increase this week


1 comment
Many more school meal sites will be available in Central Oregon starting Monday, March 30.

Sites were more limited over spring break, which technically took place last week—though with kids out of school in Oregon since mid-March and Gov. Kate Brown's "Stay Home Save Lives" order in place, the break wasn't quite as eventful as it might have been.
