FREE FOOD BOXES for 4J families, Friday, May 29, 11 a.m.–12 p.m. We’re distributed 1,540 food boxes through the USDA Farmers to Families program at seven grab-and-go meal sites: Arts & Technology Academy, South Eugene High School, ECCO, and Chávez, Howard, Holt and Awbrey Park elementary schools.
Families can pick up a free food box (one per family) at any of these seven locations. Similar to the student grab-and-go meal distribution, there are no income requirements and students do not need to be present. This week’s food boxes include deli meat, dairy products, fruits and vegetables.
The next food box distribution is Wednesday, June 3 same time (11 a.m.–12 p.m.) at the same 7 locations.
We are deeply grateful to our local partners SnoTemp Cold Storage, Emerald Fruit & Produce and McDonald Wholesale, who stepped up to provide cold storage and delivery at no charge. We couldn’t provide this assistance to our families without your help. Thank you!
