268 Baldwin Street (New Brunswick Adult Learning Center)

The school district asks that only one or two members of each family come to pick up the meals.

This is to ensure that families maintain social distancing and stay healthy while receiving meals.

The school district will be providing free meals to children 18 and younger thanks to the Summer Food Service Program.

It is a federal program of the Food and Nutrition Services, United States Department of Agriculture. It provides all children 18 years of age and under younger with the same free meal in accordance with a menu approved by the state.

The program is scheduled to run through Aug. 17.
