BRUSD New Meal Distribution Plan Starting 4/14/2020

Good evening:

Given current conditions, safety for all concerned is our top priority. Therefore, beginning Tuesday, April 14, 2020, several changes will occur regarding the delivery of our free breakfast and lunch programs.

Foremost, going forward, three days' worth of meals will be provided at once inside a single package, with food being distributed only on Tuesday and Friday of each week from 10:00 am-12:00 pm. This adjustment reduces potential exposure to employees, volunteers, and food recipients, while yet providing a stable food source for many.


Secondly, numerous bus routes will remain in place as the primary means of distribution. Further, these efforts will be supported by an alternative delivery point located at the RE-center, sponsored by The Church. The address for this facility is 814 White Mountain Blvd. Pinetop, Arizona. Anyone previously served at the elementary school will now be served at this site.

Meal packages will also be delivered at the current locations established to support both McNary and Whiteriver communities, as described above on Tuesdays and Fridays, with no changes to time, from 10:00 am-12 pm.

Please note- adjustments to the location of some bus stops have occurred. Please visit our website at for more details. Meal service will continue for the rest of this week without any changes, and resume Tuesday, April 14, 2020. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
