Free weekly student meal distributions continue

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

The weekly distribution of free meals for students resumes on Jan. 8 after pausing for the two-week winter break.

Distributions occur each Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at fifteen locations around the district.  Each bag or box contains a week worth of lunches and breakfasts for one student.  Weekly distributions are expected to continue in the same format until COVID numbers improve enough that students start to return to school in a blended learning model.

Meals are available for all of 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 the food 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 schools were ordered to close to slow the spread of COVID-19.  The district continues to distribute about 100,000 meals a week.
