Free Meals for Children
March 19, 2020
Effective Monday, March 23 through Friday, May 22, meals for children will be served Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to noon at the following locations: Barkers Mill Elementary, Barksdale Elementary, Burt Elementary, Byrns Darden Elementary, Cumberland Heights Elementary, Glenellen Elementary, Kenwood Elementary, Minglewood Elementary, Moore Elementary, Norman Smith Elementary, Ringgold Elementary, and Woodlawn Elementary and Kenwood High, Montgomery Central High, Northeast High, Northwest High and West Creek High.
This service is open to all children 18 years and younger. Meals will be distributed via a grab-and-go, curbside method. The child receiving the meal must be present at the distribution site. Meals cannot be consumed on site, per USDA regulations.
Each child will get a bag that will include four meals on both Monday and Wednesday, and six meals on Friday. Some of the food will require refrigeration and/or re-heating to ensure freshness. This plan will reduce the amount of travel to and from the distribution sites during the week.
We encourage families to practice social distancing and not congregate at the meal pickup locations. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate the logistics of this program.
