June 2, 2021– GCS will continue to feed hungry children this summer, as it has since the pandemic began. The district will switch to its summer distribution locations on Tuesday, June 8. Those locations are:
Gillespie Park Elementary
Irving Park Elementary
Oak Hill Elementary
Union Hill Elementary
Meals are available Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. An extra meal is included on Thursday to accommodate for Friday.
GCS also will serve meals to students involved in summer academic programs. As of Tuesday, more than 14,000 students had registered for those programs.
In addition, meals will be served through the district’s mobile program, which brings meals by bus to locations where transportation can be an issue for families, such as homeless shelters.
The district will not serve meals on Friday, June 4, or Monday, June 7, which is a vacation day for all school nutrition employees. Instead, an additional meal will be provided on June 3 for June 4 and June 7.
No meals will be distributed the week of July 5, as the district will be closed. Additional meals will be provided on July 1 for July 2 and July 5-7. The summer meal program will continue through August 12.
