Fairfield District Grab and Go School Meals Update:


The Fairfield District’s Grab and Go School Meal service started just two days after the Covid-19 school closure.   With an incredible team of nine food service professionals and help from our transportation and maintenance teams, 48 service days later we have served over 46,000+ free meals to children throughout our community.  We will continue to serve meals through July 31, 2020.  Thank you to Dollar General, Hy-Vee and Walmart who have provided plastic bags for packing the meals, without these bags this would not be possible. The program has three delivery routes throughout the rural areas of the District.  There are four pick-up points throughout Fairfield at the Fairfield Middle School, Washington Elementary, Fairfield High School and Lincoln Center.   As the weather is beginning to change to warmer days we know that we will need a refrigerated vehicle to keep the food at proper temperatures for food safety. 

As soon as our community realized we had a need, many people stepped up to help. Thank you to Jesse Narducci, of Jefferson County Ciderworks, who has loaned us a refrigerated van temporarily until we are able to purchase the refrigerated vehicle that we need.  Thank you to Smithburg’s BP, Palmer Muffler, and the Lock Doctor, who helped prepare the van for us to use and to June Lowenberg who spearheaded the project.
