MEDFORD, Ore. — Last week, the Medford School District announced that schools will begin fully remote this fall. Now the question is — how will students get the proper nutrition that they need to succeed?

The School District says that students will still be able to get free meals. It will work the same as in the spring, when the school district first went to distance learning.

The meals will be provided by Sodexo, and they will be free "grab-and-go" meals for kids. For the kids most in need, bus drivers from First Student are making deliveries.

“Just because we're going to be doing distance learning, it doesn't mean that it's not a priority. It's there, it's there more than ever. And so we will continue with providing meals through our partner, Sedexo, as long as we're doing distance learning. And then obviously the meals would be available once we go back to in-person,” said Natalie Hurd, Communications Coordinator with the Medford School District.

The School District says they are looking to expand their services.

The Oregon Department of Education is expected to release more information on Tuesday regarding the health metrics for schools to reopen.

Klamath County School District also said on Monday that it plans to make sure every student has a meal, regardless of reopening status.
