Time frame for distribution is 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.; Early Arrival Suggested
Although Gary Schools being are physically closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the District is committed to making food available to students every Monday through the end of summer 2020. As GCSC distributes food items to youth ages 18 and younger on Monday, April 27th from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., each youth will also receive an age appropriate book while supplies last.
During the food distribution, a fleet of buses will be dispatched to locations across the city and will stay in these locations for 45-minute increments or until food items are exhausted. There will not be a second route, therefore, early arrival is suggested. Families should only get food from one site to ensure that the District can serve as many youth as possible.
Food items will be handed out by district employees and representatives from food vendor Sodexo Magic. The list of distribution stops can be found below, here and on the homepage of the school district’s website.
Families are asked to bring bags, boxes and any other items to help with the transport of their food items. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early. Security will also be on hand to conduct orderly distribution while ensuring that social distancing is practiced.
