FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM DURING SCHOOL CLOSURE
Food service workers are working diligently to help meet the nutritional needs of our families. All school-age children are eligible to receive breakfast and lunch at no cost. The district has transitioned from a 5-day distribution cycle to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule in order to decrease the amount of contact time for staff. Pick up times are 3:00PM - 6:00PM. With this change, the amount of food delivered for the week will not be reduced.
Meal distribution is made from the front auditorium entrance. Please adhere to signage and traffic cones that are in place. Drivers or passengers are NOT to exit their vehicles. Thank you for your cooperation.
In addition, beginning, Monday, April 13th, Akron Schools will begin collaboration with FeedMore WNY, a mobile food pantry available to any community resident or family in need. Pick up days/times for meal kits will be Mondays and Fridays from 3:00 to 6:00PM at the front Elementary entrance (Door #2) of the bus loop.
Any questions regarding the meal program, including children with special dietary requirements, may be directed to Mrs. Barbara Goodman, Food Services Director, at (716)542-5027.

The Akron Central School District is partnering with Rattles to Reading Child Care, Inc., located at 6263 Scotland Rd, Akron, New York, to provide access to childcare for medical workers and first responders while schools are closed due to COVID-19 (coronavirus).
