PCSD Nutrition Services offers Emergency Grab & Go meals for students and families
March 23, 2020
During this unprecedented and difficult time, Parma City School District is committed to helping our students, staff and families be safe, healthy and secure. In this endeavor, PCSD, along with other community organizations, are doing our part to make sure our families have access to fresh meals and food.
PCSD has been holding, and will continue to hold, Emergency Grab & Go lunches and breakfasts for families to pick up during the extended break.
For the safety of families and staff, drive through drop-offs will be held in the back bus loop at Parma Senior High School. Please enter the parking lot at the corner of Longwood Avenue and W. 48th Street.
Parents and guardians will receive seven lunches and seven breakfasts for each child 18 and under. Students must be present in the vehicle to receive meal packages.
Fresh produce, milk and other nutritious items are included in each meal package. PCSD Nutrition Services Department is still committed to supporting local businesses and purchasing fresh food for students. Each week, the district will try to include locally-sourced items for families to enjoy.
Those who would like to participate in this program must sign up each week. The sign-up link will be posted to the district’s social media accounts and website.
The next pick-up date will be on Wednesday, March 25, 2020. Visit the website at www.parmacityschools.org for more information and to sign up for any future meal pick-up dates. The PCSD will announce when meal sign-ups are available on our website and social media.
The Parma Area Collaborative continues to have food distributions for families and community members in need, as well.
In partnership with the Hunger Network of Cleveland, the Parma Area Collaborative will have food and fresh produce available for anyone in the community. Deliveries vary and quantities are limited. Distribution is on a first come, first served basis.
