Food program from school ending on Monday, June 29

The breakfast/lunch distribution program from the high school put into place in March is ending on Monday, June 29; the last day of deliveries will be Tuesday, June 30.

On Monday, two lunches and one breakfast will be distributed on the last day – enough for Monday and Tuesday. On Tuesday, the lasts day of deliveries, the Tuesday lunch will be delivered.

SICM, which had operated a summer meal program at Collins Park for the past several years, will not be holding it this year.

However, area churches will be providing food for up to 70 families – boxes with about 40 pounds each week – each Friday beginning on July 10th and ending August 28th. That program is targeting students who participate in the Backpack program at school. The boxes can be picked up at Lincoln Elementary School (40 Albion Street, Scotia, phone 518-347-3600 extension 31101) each Friday from 8:30 to 1:00.

This program is available to any family that needs food and has a child that receives free or reduced lunch and breakfast.

Deliveries are available to families that are unable to pick them up.
