Meals During Remote Learning

We are pleased to announce that the USDA recently extended the summer food programs through December 31st, or as long as funding is available. This allows remote learning students and guardians to pick up free school meals at sites throughout the Commonwealth that are convenient to them, regardless of which school they/their student(s) attends. 

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and Project Bread will continue to publish open meal sites on Project Bread’s summer meal site finder to expand access to meals for remote learners. Please email meals@bartcharter.org if you need further assistance getting meals for your student(s) during the remote learning period.
