Food Distribution for Youth 18 and Under
- Free lunch and breakfast will continue to be provided to all youth 18 and under, but changes have been made to the distribution process for the week of Monday, March 23-Friday, March 27 to better meet the needs of our families. The School Department is still waiting on an official waiver by the USDA for delivery but felt it prudent to move forward with this action regardless as many families do not have access to transportation.
ONE curbside distribution site at Biddeford Middle School from 10:30am-12:00pm. All previous community sites have been discontinued.
Four bus routes with 60+ stops will be delivering meals to students in our community. To access meals, simply be present at the bus stop at the designated time shown on the bus schedule.
Remains curbside distribution at Dayton Consolidated School from 9:30-11:30am
ALL Dayton youth 18 and under, regardless of school affiliation, are eligible.
