Information and Resources Regarding Meal Services
We know that many families depend on schools not only for their students’ education, but also for meals, child care, access to health services and other supports. The PPS Nutrition Services department will be extending current meal services into the summer, from June 11 through August 21.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided to any PPS student and any children in the community ages 1-18, Monday through Thursday. Meals for Friday, Saturday and Sunday are provided on Thursdays. Meals will be available for pickup outside the school from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the locations below. Children do not need to be present to pickup the meals.
As in years past, Nutrition Services will also partner with Portland Parks and Recreation to provide meals at 13 additional parks throughout the city starting June 22. The park locations and their service time are listed below.
Households financially impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) may be able to qualify for The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). SNAP offers food benefits to eligible, low-income individuals and families. Find out if you are eligible and how to apply for food benefits by clicking here.
