FREE SUMMER MEALS FOR PPS STUDENTS AND ALL CHILDREN6/8/2020
Meals for Students
We are pleased to announce that the meal service we have provided for students since the closure of school on March 16 will continue during the summer. Although we will lose two sites, Harrison Park and Rigler, due to construction, we are adding a new site, Faubion, to bring our total to 14 schools where students can receive breakfast and lunch Monday to Thursday, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Please note the start time has shifted from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Faubion will start Monday, June 15. Breakfast and lunch will continue to be free for all PPS students and all children in the community ages 1-18 years. Children do not need to be present to receive a meal. Pantry services in partnership with Oregon Food Bank and SUN will also continue into the summer, along with the food boxes with Pacific Coast Fruit Company.
PPS also is partnering again with Portland Parks & Recreation to provide meals at 13 additional parks throughout the city starting June 22.
Summer Learning Opportunities
Our teams are creating learning opportunities for all students and families throughout the summer. Students and families will continue to have access to online learning modules featuring activities in language arts, math, and other enrichment areas. The PPS Learning Modules can be found at pps.net/student.
In addition, our Humanities department is hosting a Summer Literacy Challenge where students in grades K-8 can participate in weekly learning challenges for the chance to receive books, gift cards, and passes to local attractions such as OMSI. More information can be found at the 2020 Summer Fun page.
