Campbell County School Closure
The Campbell County School District’s Nutrition Services Department is committed to feeding children while schools are closed due to COVID-19 concerns, according to a March 18 release from the district. CCSD has designated six schools within the county as pickup spots for student breakfasts and lunches, beginning Monday, March 23. The designated schools include:
Prairie Wind Elementary
Buffalo Ridge Elementary
Meals will be distributed from a school bus parked on location at these schools and the busses will be open for meal pickup to anyone 18 and under between the hours of 9:00 AM—12:00 PM, Monday-Friday while schools are closed. Students can pick up both breakfast and lunch at the same time but must be present to receive their meals.
All meals are free and available at each site to any child regardless of where they attend school or attendance area, and no documentation is required at pickup. The meals provided are available for pickup only, and may not be consumed onsite.
Campbell County Community Response
Sometimes Google isn't enough. When you aren't sure where to turn or even what questions to ask, a Community Resources Specialist can help you get the help you need. Visit Wyoming 2-1-1 online or simply call 2-1-1 and connect.
If you, your family, or someone you know in the community needs additional support with groceries or meals, please refer to organizations working to meet the need in Campbell County. If not otherwise indicated, please call ahead for most updated hours and services.
Blessings in a Backpack is scheduled to distribute food from 4:00—7:00 PM on March 27 and April 3 from New Life Gillette Church. Bags will be available while supplies last; children must be present to pick up, and only one bag per child in the vehicle will be provided. A drive through system is in place so there is no need to get out of vehicle.
If you are unable to pick up during the designated time, call Elly and Jenn at (307) 228-0311or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up delivery to your door.

In response to rapidly developing COVID-19 concerns, new hours will be set aside for senior citizens 60+ and the immunocompromised to shop ahead of the general public. Stores will be open to the general public after the hours conclude. Please share these new hours widely so all shoppers might follow them.
Every day one hour prior to regular hours
