HALEYVILLE - Meals to Go is resuming its drive-up food service at Haleyville City Schools for all children ages 18 and under today
From 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., parents or guardians and children ages 18 can come to the front entrance line at Haleyville High School.
“That location serves our entire community,” noted Emma Ann Hallman, director of the Child Nutrition Program for HCS.
Hallman stressed the food giveaway is open to any child in the area ages 18 and under, but the child must be with the parent or guardian, when they drive to the high school front entrance to pick up food.
“We want to stress this is for all socio-economic backgrounds,” Hallman stated. This food pickup is not just for students on free and reduced price lunches but for all students meeting the age requirement, she said.
A total of 900 food kits will be given out Wednesday, so that means each student will receive seven breakfasts and seven lunches. Breakfast foods will include frozen sausage and biscuit, cereal bars, pop tarts, etc. with lunch foods including corn dogs, barbecue, cheeseburger. Each meal comes with one gallon of milk, Hallman explained.
Food giveaways will continue each Wednesday in May, including May 6, 13 and 21, according to Hallman.
