Beginning Tuesday of school vacation week, Providence Public School District is collaborating with Sodexo to provide students free “grab and go” meals at eight school sites. These sites will continue to serve children ages 18 and under until Providence public schools reopen.
These sites have been chosen geographically to be easily accessible to families throughout the city and include:
Each site will be open weekdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., beginning Tuesday, March 17. Service lines will be located at the front entrance of each school—No families will be allowed into the buildings. Sodexo staff will hand each student a packaged lunch and a breakfast.
To qualify for meals, children must be personally present at the distribution site. No ID is required.
