Food Service Changes – Grab and Go Breakfast and Lunch to take place on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays

 

Holyoke Public Schools is changing the grab and go schedule for meals beginning Monday, April 6th.  Distribution will be changing from Monday through Friday to Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  This is being done to limit person to person contact as much as we can and still provide the service.  

  • The meals will include two breakfasts and two lunches on Monday and Wednesday for each student so they will be covered for breakfast and lunch Monday-Thursday.  
  • Please note that on Fridays students will receive 4 extra meals, so they can enjoy breakfast and lunch on Saturdays and Sundays during the closure.

 

The times and locations will remain the same.  

  • Holyoke school-aged students can pick up breakfast and lunch at the front doors of ANY of the following schools: Morgan, Donahue, Holyoke High School North, Kelly, Lawrence, and Sullivan schools from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm 
  • If these hours or locations present a challenge to you, please contact Jose Bou, jbou@hps.holyoke.ma.us 413-534-2000, Ext. 1104 or the Family and Community Engagement member from your school.
