On June 1, the district will launch a twice-a-week curbside program, offering several days' worth of boxed meals for students at 68 school sites.
“The school year may be wrapping up, but the need is still there for our families,” interim Superintendent Dr. Grenita Lathan said in a news release. “By modifying our traditional summer meals program, we can continue to feed our students in a safe way.”
Any family of a student in any local school district can participate. Drivers will be required to show proof of enrollment or a birth certificate, and families will be eligible to receive three meal boxes on Mondays and four on Thursdays for each child. Each box will contain a breakfast, lunch, and dinner for one child.
The communitywide food distribution program ended May 22, with more than 5.2 million pounds of food distributed over the past 10 weeks.
