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 continue to 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, has been approved to continue to provide meals at the bus loop of King Philip Regional High School, 201 Franklin St. in Wrentham.
The summer lunch program, originally set to conclude on Aug. 28, is now extended through Monday, Sept. 14.
Free lunch will continue to 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.
“Thanks to the Hockomock Area YMCA’s extended waiver, we will be able to continue to support our local families within our four school communities to combat food insecurity,” Director Pearl said. “With the beginning of the school year pushed back, this extension will allow us to continue to provide meals at a convenient central location at King Philip High School until students can once again receive meal distributions from their respective schools.”
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.
