  • Information and Resources Regarding Summer Meal Services

    It has been a pleasure to serve your students meals this school year. We are happy to let you know that we will continue to provide access to meals during the summer, beginning June 21. From June 21 through August 20, grab-and-go meal sacks, with breakfast and lunch, will be available between 3 and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at 15 PPS sites for all children in the community ages 1-18 (this includes PPS students as well as children not enrolled at PPS). Please note that meals will not be distributed on Monday, July 5, as the district will be closed in observance of the Independence Day holiday.  All sites are outside, and we ask that you wear a facemask and practice physical distancing as you pick up meals. Menu information, along with allergy and carbohydrate counts can be found in the drop down menu below. For a ful list of sites, please visit our Summer 2021 page.

    Households financially impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) may be able to qualify for The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
