Students will get five days' worth of breakfasts and lunches every Monday

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Weekly food distribution for Youngstown students starts up again Monday.

The distributions will happen each Monday from 12:45 to 4:45 p.m. at the following schools:

  • Paul C. Bunn Elementary School
  • Harding Elementary School
  • Kirkmere Elementary School
  • Martin Luther King Elementary School
  • McGuffey Elementary School
  • Taft Elementary School
  • Volney Rogers Elementary School
  • Williamson Elementary School
  • Wilson Elementary School
  • East High School
  • Chaney High School

Students will get five days’ worth of breakfasts and lunches. If a family has students in more than one school, they can pick up all of their kids’ meals at one location.

Students will notice more fresh fruits and vegetables in the meal bags, and salads are being added to the menu soon.

“It’s important that we know our scholars eat. Mr. Jennings from the start has said, ‘I want to make sure our scholars eat. I want them to be fed. I want them to have as much normalcy as we can with all the things we’re battling,'” said McGuffey Principal Aaron Bouie III.

This is only for students enrolled in Youngstown City Schools. You must show the student’s ID card when picking up food.

The distributions will be curbside pick-up.

To request special meal accommodations, contact the district’s food service office at 330-744-7194.
