Free meal distribution to pause over winter break

Food service workers at Bryant Middle School load free student meals into a parent's vehicle on Friday, Dec. 11, 2020.

Dec. 18 will be the last free student meal distribution for calendar year 2020 and will include the usual seven days of breakfasts and lunches.  Meal distributions will resume on January 8, 2021 at all fifteen of our meal distribution sites.

Distributions occur each Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The meal distribution is for all our students and any child in the home under the age of 18.

Any adult or student can come to one of the distribution sites and pick up a week’s worth of lunch and breakfast items for their students.  The student does not need to attend that school or be present at pickup.

Meals are available each week at Bryant Middle School, Dearborn High School, Edsel Ford High School, Fordson High School, Henry Ford Elementary, the Dearborn Heights Campus (Howe/STEM/Berry Center), Lowrey School, Maples Elementary, McCollough-Unis, McDonald Elementary, Miller Elementary, Salina Intermediate, Smith Middle School, Stout Middle School and Woodworth Middle School. 

Dearborn Public Schools began offering free food distribution in March just days after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer ordered schools to close to slow the spread of COVID-19.  The district continues to distribute about 100,000 meals a week.
