Arlington Public Schools adjusts meal distribution to feed more kids
MealsStarting on Monday, May 11, Arlington Public Schools is adjusting its meal distribution sites and times at different locations to feed more kids.

“We’ve been monitoring our meal distribution sites and the number of meals served over the past few weeks and made adjustments as needed,” said Brian Lewis, Executive Director of Operations. “With this change, we wanted more sites that were closer to kids who may not have easy access to existing sites. This change also allows us to add additional sites without adding staff or needing more equipment.”

Meals are available Monday through Friday at the following locations and times:

10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Presidents Elementary
Arlington High School

9:45 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
