FHSD Offers Meal Assistance Extended Through May

Posted on 04/29/2020
FHSD Meal Assistance

All FHSD schools are closed through the end of the school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This extended closure makes it hard for households that rely on school meals to feed their children throughout the day. FHSD is working in collaboration with Sodexo and the community to ensure all families in need have food during this unprecedented time.

On Tuesdays through the end of May, FHSD is providing meal packages to students in need with five days of food. Volunteer teachers, bus drivers, and Sodexo employees will distribute meal packages at two locations: Hollenbeck Middle and Francis Howell North. Meal packages will be available for curbside pickup, at the school the family has selected, from 2:00 - 4:00 PM.

Families interested in receiving meal packages need to complete the online form. There are no qualifying criteria, and all information is kept confidential. The sign-up form is only used to ensure the proper number of packages are prepared to fulfill all requests. Along with Tuesday distributions, the District is hosting additional Mobile Markets to serve meals to families on Wednesdays through the end of May at the Burbes Service Center. These meal packages are being provided to serve approximately 5 days worth of food, along with food from the St. Louis Area Foodbank. Please indicate on the signup form that you are also interested in picking up food on Wednesday so that we can ensure the correct number of packages are available.

To assist with this effort, the District is coordinating food drive collections on May 1 and May 8, from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Donations can be dropped off at the Burbes Service Center (across from Hollenbeck Middle School) located at 4606 Central School Road, St. Charles, MO 63304. Items needed in priority order are canned tuna/chicken, canned/cups of vegetables, applesauce, oatmeal, canned fruit, peanut butter, jelly, ramen noodles, cereal/breakfast bars, boxes of cereal, pop tarts, snack crackers, canned pasta, granola bars, and easy mac/macaroni.

Financial contributions to this effort can be made online in the FHSD Webstore.
