Alternative Summer Community Feeding Programs
Posted 5/14/20

The Escambia County School District Food Service Department wants to remind families that school meals will continue to be provided via curb-side service, until May 22, 2020.  Families should make plans now to switch to an alternative summer community feeding location.  Alternative feeding programs are currently available through a number of local organizations. 

 

Families are encouraged to locate an alternative summer community feeding location by going to https://summerbreakspot.freshfromflorida.com/, and entering a home address.  This website provides a map showing feeding sites nearby.  Families without internet access can call 2-1-1 or text FOODFL to 877-877 for assistance as well.

 

“Since closing schools due the pandemic, ECSD Food Service staff members have served over 157,000 meals; from muffins and yogurt, to cheeseburgers with fresh vegetables,” notes Escambia County School Superintendent Malcolm Thomas. 

 

“Thanks to all of the Escambia School District Food Service employees who have provided this valuable service to our students and families during such a challenging time.  They reacted quickly to find an efficient new way to serve meals, with additional safety measures necessary to protect students, families and co-workers,” said Superintendent Thomas.
