Free Meals to Our Qualifying Students

  • Updated July 20, 2020
     
    Due to concerns about the effect of summer heat and traffic on the prepared meals both organizations ( schools/service center)  are adjusting the meal pick up/delivery times for the summer.
     
    Pick up times for 2 days' worth of meals will be on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9AM-10AM. Meals will be distributed from school vans parked in front of:
    • East Falmouth School
    • Teaticket School
    • Mullen Hall
    Staff & Volunteers will hand bags to you in your vehicles. There is no expectation to provide your name or students' names when picking up food.

    If this is a new concern for your family, please contact us at info@falmouth.k12.ma.us  If you absolutely require delivery due to a lack of transportation, please contact us as well. We need to minimize the risk to staff/volunteers and want to make sure that delivery is an absolute necessity for your children to get fed. If you no longer require delivery, please let us know too.

    Our thanks go out to you, our staff, and community members that are working together in collaboration to provide these services to our students!
