WVUSD providing free meals to students

The Walnut Valley Unified School District (WVUSD) will be providing meals at no cost to students ages 18 and under starting Monday, March 16 following the closure of WVUSD schools. Students do not need to be enrolled in WVUSD or in the free and reduced lunch program to receive meals, according to an email sent by Director of Nutrition Services Emmalyn Coles.

The service is available Monday through Friday from 7:30 to 10 a.m. in the staff parking lot of Walnut High School and in front of the gym at Diamond Bar High School. Alternate distribution locations at other districts can be found on the WVUSD Nutrition Services website,

Students can obtain meals through either a drive-thru service at designated locations or a walk-up “Grab & Go” method for those without vehicle transportation. In addition, students must be physically present to pick up meals but do not need to exit their vehicle.

Update: The story was updated to include the distribution location at Diamond Bar High School. (March 15, 2020)
