Third location added for weekly food distribution

As the holiday season approaches, Nutrition Services is opening a third location for its weekly community distributions of food and other supplies.

Starting Wednesday, Nov. 11, Barnett Stadium will host a weekly Neighborhood Supersite from 2 to 6 p.m. The district had planned to re-launch the Wednesday site this week but there was a delay in the delivery of supplies.

The distribution at the stadium, located at 6800 Fairway Drive, will be in addition to the Saturday sites at Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center and Hexser T. Holliday Food Services Support Center.

Neighborhood Supersites are designed to provide standing times and locations where the community can pick up student meals, as well as food and other supplies for families.

Community food and supplies are available to all. Student meals are available to any child who is between the ages of 1 and 18 and engaged in virtual learning. If children are not in the car, families must provide a birth certificate or proof of enrollment in any school district for each child needing meals.

Distributions will be held on most Wednesdays and Saturdays through December. The sites will be closed Nov. 25 and 28 for Thanksgiving, and Dec. 23, 26, and Dec. 30 for the winter holiday.

For a complete list of student meals and community distribution times and locations, visit Families are encouraged to check the website for temporary closures before going to the distribution location.
