While schools are closed this summer, children under age 18 or under age 21 for youth with disabilities can receive free meals every week from the Fulton County Schools Nutrition Program's Summer FoodStop sites, according to a news release from FCS May 29.

"The Fulton County Schools Nutrition Program recognizes the important role school meals play in combating childhood hunger," said Alyssia Wright, executive director of the FCS Nutrition Program, in the release. "For many families, schools are the one place their children can get a nutritious meal. Our FoodStop drive-thrus allow communities to continue feeding children when school is not in session."

Beginning June 3, meals will be passed out in drive-thru fashion each Wednesday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at 22 distribution sites throughout the district. Each food package contains 10 meals—five breakfasts and five lunches—to feed students until the next meal package, the release said.

Here are the FoodStop locations.

  • Abbotts Hill, Asa Hilliard, Brookview, College Park, Hamilton E. Holmes, Hembree Springs, Ison Springs, Esther Jackson, Lake Forest, Hapeville, Liberty Point, Mimosa and Vickery Mill elementary schools

  • Haynes Bridge, Holcomb Bridge, McNair and Sandy Springs middle schools

  • Banneker, Creekside, Langston Hughes, Tri-Cities and Westlake high schools


To maximize social distancing, drivers should not leave their vehicles, but walk-ups are allowed.
