Where to Find Meals During the Week
In light of schools being closed from Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27, the School District and City of Philadelphia announced plans to provide meal service and drop-in activity space for students over the next two weeks.
From Monday through Friday, 9 am through noon, any Philadelphia students get up to two grab-and-go meals. Below is a list of school sites that are nearby the four Steppingstone MGA Schools. If you attend but do not live near a Steppingstone School visit the Philadelphia School District website to see all 30 meal sites.
“No child should go hungry because they are not in school,” said Mayor Jim Kenney. “The City and School District will continue to do everything we can to make sure our students’ basic needs are met during this challenging time. I ask Philadelphians to continue looking out for one another by sharing resources like this with their loved ones and neighbors.”
Meal and activity sites were selected based on neighborhood needs, size of facilities, and a desire to be geographically spread throughout the city. Again, other than the sites listed above, all other Parks & Recreation sites across the City will be closed to the public effective Monday, March 16.
