Meal Distribution for Kids in Gloucester Twp. Switching from Grab-and-Go to By-Request
June 15 will be the last day for grab and go meal distribution in Gloucester Township.
Gloucester Twp. Food Service Supervisor Jane Cora wrote in a letter to parents, "On behalf of the entire Food Service staff, it has been a pleasure to feed the wonderful children of this district during this unprecedented pandemic and resulting school closure.", Patch.com reports.
Grab-and-go meals have been available throughout the coronavirus pandemic for students in Gloucester Township, with food distribution setups at Mullen, C.W. Lewis, and Glen Landing middle schools.
But parents who've been relying on help from the township during this uncertain time shouldn't worry.
Beyond next Monday, residents wanting to continue getting free meals through the summer should visit summerfoodrocks.org/sitefinder, or call 1-866-3-HUNGRY for a local distribution center.
Applications for free or reduced-cost meals for the coming school year can be found on GloucesterTownshipSchools.org next month, and emailed to parents in August, but must be completed and turned in by September 1st.
