How does the program work?
▪ When you arrive at the meal pickup site that is most convenient for you, look for the school nutrition personnel in the front parking lot.
▪ Go to the distribution area and ask for a meal.  The meal will be packaged in a bag.
▪ The meal will be provided to children (age 18 and younger) free-of-charge.
▪ You should plan to take the meal with you – there is not a place to eat on-site.
▪ You may pick up a meal at any of the sites, regardless of where you live or attend school.
