DASD offers free 5-day meal bags to all children 0-18

In an effort to support its community and provide needed relief during the coronavirus pandemic, Downingtown Area School District (DASD) will extend its food services program and offer free meals to all children, ages 0-18, through the end of the 2020-21 school year.

 

Thanks to an allowance made by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), DASD will provide a free, five-day supply of breakfasts and lunches per child. Children who are participating in programs in district buildings will also be eligible for free, daily meals.

 

DASD’s five-day meal bags will be provided on Mondays from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. at Downingtown High School West (please use Manor Ave entrance) AND Downingtown High School East. There is no need to preregister or provide identification. The currently-scheduled last day of services is June 7. Please contact Kathleen LaBricciosa with any questions at klabricciosa@dasd.org.
