Summer FREE Meals for students

Free meal service for kids under the age of 18 will continue this summer through Elyria Schools and Aramark school foodservice.  

Beginning June 9, 2020, the distribution schedule is changing. The sites of Prospect and Franklin elementary schools will close for the summer but the sites of Elyria High School, Oakwood Elementary School and the existing Northwood Middle School (on Gulf Road) will reopen for service.

Distribution at these sites will follow a drivethrough model until further notice. Families do not need to exit their vehicles during pick up. Likewise children do not need to present during pick up. Upon arrival, families will be provided with multiple-days-worth of cold breakfast, lunch and dinner items for the specificed number of children in the household that are under the age of 18.
