The St. Tammany Parish School Board says they are partnering with local businesses and “Grab and Go” meal distribution will resume next week with both daily and weekly pick up options.
The daily option allows families to pick up one hot lunch and prepackaged breakfast for each child every weekday at Covington High and Slidell High from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m, beginning Monday, March 30.
The weekly option allows families to pick up five shelf-stable lunches and breakfasts for each child once a week on Wednesdays at Fontainebleau High, Lakeshore High, Mandeville High, Northshore High, Pearl River High, Salmen High, Pitcher Junior High, and Slidell Junior High from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. beginning Wednesday, April 1.
Both options are free and open to all STPPS students and children ages 18 and under. They say they have worked with local, state, and health officials to find this alternative way to distribute food to families in our community while helping to ensure the health and safety of all those involved. The local community business partners will prepare and distribute the meals using their own facilities, staff, food and other resources. They say partnering with these local businesses will help make this program sustainable so we can best meet the needs of our students, employees and community.
