United Way And Partners Providing Meals During Spring Break
Friday, March 27th, 2020
United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley in partnership with the Community Foundation of the Chattahoochee Valley and a group of community partners are working to help meet the nutritional needs of children over spring break, while Muscogee County School District is closed.
Students will receive a Buddy Pack on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of next week. Funding for the Buddy Packs is provided by the generous support of The Arby’s Foundation in partnership with The Coronavirus Response Fund. Each Buddy Pack will include 2 days’ worth of kid friendly food. We will follow the current delivery locations to increase access to students. Meals will be available, through a grab-and-go service, to all children 0-18. Students must be present to receive a Buddy Pack.
Student meals will be provided each day, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., at the following sites:
Baker Middle School
Carver High School
Dawson Elementary School
Double Churches Middle School
Eagle Trace Apartments
Elizabeth Canty Apartments
Fox Elementary School
J.D. Davis Elementary School
Jordan High School
Kendrick High School (front of school area)
Key Elementary School
Spencer High School
Warren Williams Apartments
We are currently working to share this information with children and familiesthrough the school district. Parents will receive information through regular used school communication platforms, and we will promote through social media. Please help us get the word out to school children that want Buddy Packs!
During this difficult time, our utmost priority remains the safety and well-being of the students and volunteers. We ask that all individuals maintain a social distance while waiting in line for their meals. Meals will not be consumed on site.
Partners involved in this effort include Boys & Girls Clubs, Cascade Hills, Girls Inc., Evangel Temple, Feeding the Valley, First Baptist Church, Open Door, The Salvation Army, Take the City, and YMCA.
