Food Plan during the Coronavirus School Closure
Parchment School District is finalizing plans for food distribution sites as part of the Unanticipated School Closure (part of the Summer Food Program). Each of the sites will be distributing free meals to any child in Kalamazoo County aged 18 or younger, as well as any special needs adults aged 26 or under who are part of an educational program.
We will be distributing a free grab-and-go lunch for that day and a grab-and-go breakfast for the next day, at the same time. Any adult or child may pick up the free meals.
We are also able to provide meals for Saturday and Sunday, so on Friday, children will receive a breakfast and lunch for Saturday and Sunday, too. Because of this emergency closure, some of the rules regarding this meal distribution have been relaxed. The meals must be taken home to be eaten and there is no eating at Parchment High School or on the school busses.
- Food will be available for pickup at the high school from 11:30 to 12:30 and via the buses like we have been doing, on Tuesday and Friday only
Transportation is working with current school bus route schedules to make stops throughout our district to deliver the meals as part of their normal bus route. Adults and children must come to the bus to get their meals. The busses will take off from Parchment High School around 11:30am and start their routes in the district. Bus route timing will be difficult to determine the first two days, but should fall into place after that with each route lasting around 45 minutes. Bus routes, with bus numbers and additional details, will be announced by 4pm on Monday March 16th.
In order for us to make this food distribution work smoothly, we will need a minimum of 52 people to volunteer each day.
- 15 people to prep from 8 AM - 10:30 AM
- 15 people to prep/serve from 10:30 AM - 1 PM
- 22 people to ride buses and help distribute food from 10:30 AM - 1 PM
For volunteer options or questions about the meal service plan, please email. firstname.lastname@example.org
Please leave information regarding what days and shifts you are able to volunteer. A schedule will be created and will update all those who volunteer. Thank you for your help.
