Litchfield Elementary School District expands grab-and-go meal program


Families of Litchfield Park Elementary School District students ages 18 and younger now have a total of 18 sites where they can pick up free grab-and-go breakfasts and lunches prepared by the district’s Food Services Department weekdays while schools are closed due to COVID-19, the coronavirus.

The USDA-funded program began Wednesday, March 17 and will continue Mondays through Fridays until schools reopen. On Wednesday, March 25, the district added 10 pickup sites in Avondale, Buckeye, Glendale and Litchfield Park, the communities served by the district.
