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 December 31, 2020.


Thanks to an allowance made by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), beginning Tuesday, September 8, 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 Tuesdays from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Downingtown High School West (445 Manor Ave., Downingtown, PA 19335; please use Manor Ave entrance) AND Tuesdays from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at Downingtown High School East. There is no need to preregister or provide identification. The currently-scheduled last day of services is December 31. Please contact Kathleen LaBricciosa with any questions
