‘Grab and go’ bagged lunches will be available at 6 locations

ALBION – The school district on Wednesday will begin providing “grab and go” bagged lunches for all students in the school district. (Breakfasts will be available beginning on Thursday.)

Albion has been approved by New York State’s school meals program to offer the meals for all residents under the age of 18 in the home of an Albion Central School student.

Students in the school district (or a parent of an ACS student presenting ID) may pick up meals. Parents need to fill out a short form available by clicking here so the district can have the right number of meals ready for each location.

Meals will be available Monday through Friday beginning Wednesday at the following locations:.

• Albion Elementary School (9 a.m. to 11 a.m.)

• Oak Orchard Estates (11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.)

• Lydun Drive Extension-Canal Town Commons (11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.)

• Elks’ Lodge (11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.)

• Barre Center Presbyterian Church (11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.)

• Carlton Recreation Hall (11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.)

For the elementary school pick up, parents should enter from East Avenue (by the tennis courts) and drive towards the elementary school building. They will stop at D-wing (the wing next to the farm playground) to place their order and then drive to A-wing to pick up their food and leave via Clarendon Road. The school is a different time than the rest (9 a.m. to 11 a.m.).

The five other sites will have ACS buses or vans in the parking lots. Food will be distributed from these school vehicles between 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
