School district expands free meal offerings

Per the U.S. Department of Agriculture, free breakfast and lunch is available for Plainville students through June 2021. Additionally, the Plainville Community Schools Food Services Department has expanded the breakfast and lunch program to include weekends.

Each Friday, families can pick up meals outside Plainville High School (flag pole entrance area) between 9:15 and 10 a.m. Weekend meals include two breakfasts and two lunches. All children under the age of 18 qualify. The meals are frozen.

The Food Services Department will also be offering free meals to children under age 18 for the Thanksgiving break. Pick-up will be Tuesday, Nov. 24, from 4 to 5 p.m. Families can pick up four breakfasts and four lunches. Families interested in the holiday meal program can sign up via flyers distributed to students.

Director of Finance and Operations, Sam Adlerstein, said “Don't lose out!”

“Many Plainville students are already having free, great-tasting, nutritious breakfasts and lunches each day. If your student is not, please give it a try, at least for a few days,” Adlerstein said. “Your participation will also help our program maintain its funding.”
