WRENTHAM — Superintendents Paul Zinni, David Raiche, Allan Cameron and Ingrid Allardi, and Regional Director of Wellness Dot Pearl, are pleased to announce King Philip Regional High School will serve as a Hockomock Area YMCA USDA Summer Meals distribution site for the King Philip, Plainville, Norfolk and Wrentham school communities.
The USDA Summer Food Service Program, sponsored by the Hockomock Area YMCA, will provide meals at the bus loop of King Philip Regional High School, 201 Franklin St. in Wrentham.
Free lunch will be provided for all children ages 18 and under from the King Philip, Plainville, Norfolk and Wrentham school communities. Meals can be picked up on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“We are so grateful to the Hockomock Area YMCA for supporting local families in our four school communities as they work to ensure their children have access to food during these challenging times,” Director Pearl said. “All families are able to pick up meals at a convenient central location at King Philip High School, and can also use the other sites hosted by the YMCA to ensure their children have access to meals.”
Starting Monday, June 29, meals will be available for pick up three days per week. Meals will be provided for the following day when picked up on Monday and Wednesday, and for the full weekend when collected on Friday.
There is no advanced sign-up process or paperwork necessary to receive meals. Meals are free and drive-up pick up is open to all.
This partnership enables King Philip Regional School District to continue the food distribution program that Plainville and Norfolk schools provided for the region’s students when schools closed in March. The summer lunch program will end Aug. 28.
