As we approach the Thanksgiving break, meals for students will be distributed Nov. 23 from 9 a.m. to noon. Children will receive multiple days of meals, including fresh and shelf-stable produce, breakfast, snack meal kits, and milk. “Children will be out of school during the holidays and we want to ensure they have access to nutritious food. Currently, meals are distributed every Monday and parents have expressed their gratitude for their child’s favorite meals,” said Lora Gilbert, Sr. Director of the OCPS Food and Nutrition Services program. 

USDA funds are provided through the Florida Department of Agriculture's Child Nutrition Program to allow for all children under 18 to receive meals at no charge. Neighborhood volunteers, PTSA's, non-profits, city, community, or church programs sponsoring children's activities may also pick up meals for delivery to children.
