Johnson City Press • Mar 21, 2020 at 12:02 AM

Johnson City Schools will begin its child meal distribution on Tuesday, March 24, as JCS returns from spring break, according to a Friday press release.

All 11 school sites will have drive-thru style service between 10:45 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. that will provide “Grab and Go” breakfast and lunch to each student at no cost. There will also be 18 mobile food distribution sites.

The free meals are available to all children under the age of 18, regardless if they are a Johnson City Schools student or not. However, a child must be present to receive a meal. Parents and children may walk or drive to designated pick-up areas.

If you are driving, please roll down your windows when it is time to receive your meal as they will be handed into the vehicles. School buildings will not be open to the public.
