Dear Families & Students,
We know during this time of uncertainty, job and school closures have had an undue impact on food security. Shrewsbury Public Schools is committed to helping students access the meals they need to thrive while schools are closed.
Shrewsbury Public Schools is continuing to provide meals for all children and teens during this period of school closure. These meals are free and can be found:
- at Shrewsbury High School - Curbside Pickup. Monday and Thursdays 11:00AM-12:30PM. Three breakfasts and three lunches per child are provided on these days.
- Please contact Beth Nichols at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are unable to pick up meals. Delivery is available for families not able to pick up meals.
- More free meal locations near you can also be found through this map.
While you should always take precaution when venturing out, please know that we are following every safety protocol and best practices for social distancing at meal sites to combat the spread of disease. All meals are served in a grab and go format, to limit social interactions. School nurses are checking Food Service Staff temperatures and masks and gloves are required for our kitchen staff.
If you would like further assistance in accessing food resources during this time, Project Bread’s FoodSource Hotline (1-800-645-8333) is available to connect you to food resources as well as provide information about elder meals programs and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. The Hotline will continue to operate Monday-Friday, 8am-7pm, and Saturdays 10am-2pm, and can provide information in 160 languages. There is also a dedicated line for those that are hearing impaired.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please reach out to me at:
Food Service Director
