CPS to Consolidate Meal Sites to Ensure Support for Staff and Families

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

As the district works to support families during the unprecedented challenge presented by COVID-19, CPS announced that grab-and-go meals will be available to families during the district’s scheduled spring break. Through one of the nation’s most ambitious free meal programs, 2.8 million grab-and-go meals have been provided to CPS families since schools closed earlier this month. To provide greater flexibility for district staff who have helped feed students in recent weeks and to ensure long-term consistency in location pick-up for families, the district will be consolidating its least utilized meal distribution sites beginning April 13.  Since schools closed earlier this month, CPS has operated meal sites at nearly all district schools. Grab and go meal sites are open every weekday, and families who visit meal sites are provided with three days of breakfast and lunch per child. For the full list of meal sites that will be open during spring break and under the consolidated site plan beginning April 13, please visit cps.edu/mealsites or call 773-553-KIDS.
