As part of Veteran United Home Loans’ commitment to enhancing lives in our communities, we have developed online interactive maps of locations offering free meals along the I-70 Corridor. We have also generated maps that show the routes of free meals being delivered by the public schools in Columbia and Jefferson City. We will continue to add food resources to these maps as we become aware of new resources and efforts that develop during this time of need. To add a new resource to a map, please complete this form:https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/L9KXGFC.

CPS Meals and Schedule
Veterans United has developed the following map with plotted delivery points for the Columbia Public School District’s grab-and-go meal delivery program. We are hopeful this map helps students in need connect with district meal offerings. Details from CPS are provided below:
Our grab-and-go meal delivery for students in need will still begin on March 30. We will have 8 buses running multiple stop routes Monday-Friday. Stops are not school specific, but rather designed regionally to include as many high-need areas as possible. Please find the stop closest to you and go there with your student at the designated time. Students ages 2-18 years of age can obtain a meal. Stops will last approximately 15 minutes. We ask that you practice social distancing while at the stop. Both breakfast and lunch will be packed as a Grab-and-Go bag. Students may select a sack meal, one milk and a fruit and/or vegetable. Meals contain mostly non-perishable items. Please adhere to disposal and refrigeration instructions for perishable items.
Federal regulations require that the student be present in order to obtain the meal. If your student has mobility concerns (or the parent has mobility concerns) which prevent them from getting to meal drop-off locations, another trusted adult may come to the drop-off location and pick up the student’s meals. In this case, when the parent/guardian/trusted adult picks up the student’s meal, they must provide their student’s ID number.
