"Grab and Go" Meal Pick Up Sites

The Food and Nutrition Services department will be serving a “Grab & Go” breakfast and lunch at selected schools and community sites. The USDA has granted the District the flexibility to provide these meals during a time of unanticipated closure.

Breakfast and lunch will be served together in a single bag. The meals are free for anyone 18 years of age and under. Each child must be present at the pick-up location to receive a “Grab & Go” bag. It is expected the meals will be eaten at home, and not the schools where they are picked up.
