USDA SFSP Unanticipated School Closure Program

 

March 15, 2020

 

 

 

Dear Parents or Guardians,

 

The Westwood Community School District is doing all we can to keep our students safe and healthy. Therefore, during this emergency school closure, Robichaud High School and Daly Elementary School are going to provide free meals through the USDA Summer Food Service Program Unanticipated School Closure program. Meals are available to kids and teens ages 1 – 18 and for Special Needs students up to age 26. Participation is not limited to school-age students.

 

Free Meal Program Details:

  • · Breakfast and Lunch Meals are FREE and available for pick up for children and teens ages 18 and younger.
  • · Free meals will help families save money and stretch their already tight food budgets.
  • · Food served is healthy and follows USDA nutrition guidelines.
  • · Different from the summer meal program all meals are to be taken home, cafeterias will not be available for children to eat meals at the distribution sites.
  • · Children do not need to be present. A parent or guardian can pick up the meal(s) and bring it home to the children.
  • · No application or proof of income needed. You can just show up at Robichaud High School between 10:30 AM and 3:00 and pick up the meals needed.
  • · Meals for two (2) or three (3) (multiple) days will be issued on each visit. Drive up, provide a staff member with the number of children who need meals at your home and they will be delivered to your car.
