Have a child at home? 

Schools are working hard to make sure kids can still access free meals when needed. Check out this list to see where students can receive free meals during school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Coming in May - Due to Coronavirus, families with children who qualify for free or reduced-price meals at school will be eligible for up to $365 in P-EBT benefits to buy food. Click here for info.



COVID-19 precautions: 

To help prevent the spread of disease, we are taking proactive steps including:

  1. pre-packing food bags
  2. implementing drive through distributions where possible
  3. thoroughly disinfecting surfaces
  4. changing signature procedures
  5. increasing space for people to practice “social distancing” while at distributions
  6. We are urging all participants and volunteers - if feeling ill, stay home to prevent spreading illness. A proxy may be sent to pick up for those in need of food who cannot or should not leave home. Please be sure the note has the date, who the food is for, and permission for the name of person who is picking it up.
