Grab-n-Go Breakfast and Lunch

Johnston Community School District is providing FREE LUNCH and BREAKFAST meal bundles each Monday, (Tuesday after Memorial Day holiday), for all children ages 1 – 18 years old.

Drive up to any of the approved site locations between 12:00 p.m. and 12:30 p.m.  Participants can remain in the vehicle, pop the trunk and a volunteer will place a bundle of five (5) lunch meals plus five (5) breakfast meals for each child in the vehicle.  Each Monday (Tuesday after Memorial Day holiday = 4 meals) a five (5) day supply of free Breakfast and Lunch meals per child will be offered through August 10, 2020.  Walk-up participants should bring a backpack for ease of carrying the meals home. This approach will help promote social distancing which can help keep our community safe.
