The Jersey Shore Area School District will be providing meals for all children ages 18 and younger starting Tuesday, March 17th and every weekday after that through Friday, March 27th. These meals will be distributed from 11 AM to 1 PM from Avis Elementary, Jersey Shore Area Elementary and Salladasburg Elementary. The children must be present to receive the meals. Due to the regulations of this program, we are not allowed to give extra meals, or meals for students/children who are not present. When picking up your meals in a car, please do not get out of the vehicle. Just pull up to the front entrance of the school and one of our folks helping with this program will come to your vehicle to assist you. If you are walking to one of these locations, please do not congregate around the schools. Once you are given your meals, please leave the area promptly. We are hoping our families are able to take advantage of this program during this time and are able to make it to one of these schools. The backpack program through the Love Center will continue as well. The backpacks will be delivered to the schools on Fridays and will be distributed to families who receive them when those families pick up meals on that day. High School and Middle School students who receive these backpacks will have their backpacks available at Jersey Shore Area Elementary. Again, any child 18 years old and younger can be distributed meals every weekday from Tuesday, March 17th through Friday, March 27th. Meals will consist of both a breakfast and lunch (you will receive both meals at the same time time during the distribution time).
