UPDATE 7-12-22: We have been informed that President Biden has signed a bipartisan bill into law allowing a 3-month extension of free universal school meals with critical waivers that include the ability to offer FREE Grab & Go Summer meals for 7 days a week, up until the first day of school.
MAPS Nutrition Services will participate to help our families with the high cost of food.
Our Grab & Go program will begin on Monday July 18 and will continue through Monday, August 22:
- We will offer pick up of a 7-day pack of breakfast & lunch on Mondays between 1pm-2pm at MMHS in the drop-off lane.
- If you are a family with student(s) participating in Summer School and eating meals at school, you can request a 2-day pack available for pickup at the same time as above, for weekend meals. Please contact Keri Carlson at firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order for these weekend meals for your Summer School student(s).
- All children 18 & younger may participate and those up to 26 years of age enrolled in an educational program for the mentally or physically disabled that is recognized by a State or local public educational agency.
