(September 25, 2017)-Classes may be letting out for Fall Break, but Indianapolis Public Schools will continue to provide free, healthy meals to students while they’re off. IPS’ friendly Foodservice staff will offer free breakfast and lunch at selected sites around the district October 2-13. This year’s offerings include nearly 25 locations with expanded service to three additional community sites via The Bus Stop Café food bus. Those sites include the Haughville Branch Public Library, Martin Luther King Community Center and Stratford Apartments.
“We hope to reach more children by bringing our food bus to highly visible areas within the community,” said Foodservice Director Dena Bond. “We encourage families to come visit any of our sites for a hot, healthy meal featuring fresh fruits and vegetables to keep students energized for their Fall Break activities.”
IPS served nearly 80,000 meals during the Spring and Summer breaks this year—a significant increase over the same periods last year and the district looks forward to serving even more children during Fall Break. Anyone under the age of 18, is able to eat at any feeding site for free, regardless of whether they attend an IPS school.
