Starting tomorrow, Dearborn Public Schools will offer free pick up breakfast and lunch to all of our students at any of six school locations. The grab-and-go meals will be available from 10 a.m. to noon at Fordson, Dearborn, and Edsel Ford high schools, McCollough/Unis, Salina Intermediate and Woodworth. Any child age 18 or younger is invited to receive a meal.
Dearborn Public Schools is offering free pick up lunch and breakfast for students while school is closed for the mandatory shut down over the next three weeks. Families will be able to stop in and pick up a bag with both breakfast and lunch for each child in the family. Pickups will run daily from 10 a.m. to noon starting tomorrow, March 17 at Fordson, Edsel Ford and Dearborn high schools, McCollough-Unis, Salina Intermediate, and Woodworth Middle School.
Signage at each site will direct parents and students where to enter the building. Food will be near entrances to minimize the amount of time community members spend in the facilities. Please note, meals are available to anyone age 18 and younger. Students do not need to be present, and the Dearborn School student does not need to attend at that building. A designated person can collect meals for multiple children. Meals for Saturday and Sunday can be picked up on Friday.
The program will allow the District’s 20,700 students to continue to have access to healthy food. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer last week ordered all Michigan schools closed from March 16 through April 3 to slow the spread of novel coronavirus and cases of COVID-19. Dearborn Schools is scheduled for spring break April 6 to 10, so school will not resume in the District until April 13. The grab-and-go meals will be served at least through April 3.
