AJUSD curbside meal service changes to once a week starting March 30

Posted

Apache Junction Unified School District’s Food Services Department has expanded its curbside meal service to two locations beginning Monday, March 30.

The locations are Apache Junction High School, 2525 S. Ironwood Drive, and Four Peaks Elementary School, 1785 N. Idaho Road, both in Apache Junction, according to a release.

The program will be offered once a week on Mondays and each sack will include a week’s worth of frozen items that can be prepared at home.

This free service is available for all children 18 and younger. Children must be in the car to receive the items.

The meal service for the AJHS site is 10-11:30 a.m. Participants are asked to drive up to the high school cafeteria (north parking lot gate) and employees will provide the sacked items for every child who is in the car.

The FPES service is 10:30 a.m.-noon. Participants are asked to pull up to the student drop off driveway to receive their items.

“Providing a week’s worth of groceries instead of making daily trips is one way we can more efficiently help our families and also minimize everyone’s exposure to COVID-19,” Karen Warhus, food services director for AJUSD, said in the release. “We appreciate everyone’s patience and support during these difficult times.”

Contact kwarhus@goaj.org regarding specific questions about the program. Additional information about AJUSD and COVID-19 is available on the district website, ajusd.org.
