School district to provide free food starting Monday

    For families utilizing school food services, the Juneau School District will provide free food beginning Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27.

    Food will be available for any child 18 years of age or younger at established food service sites. This effort will take place through a partnership with the Juneau School District, NANA Management Services, and First Student.

    Beginning March 16, meals will be available at Sayeik: Gastineau Elementary School, Harborview Elementary School, Riverbend Elementary School, Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School, Juneau-Douglas High School, and Thunder Mountain High School.

    First Student busses will be located in the parking lots of each distribution site. First Student staff will greet students upon arrival and provide their pre-packaged breakfast and lunch meals.

    Small groups will be maintained in the process to minimize the gathering of crowds as students receive their take-home meals.

    For elementary and middle schools, pickup time will be 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. For the high schools, pickup time will be 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
