Beginning Monday, March 23, the Franklin Special School District will offer free daily breakfast and lunch using a drive-through system, which will enable families to pick up meals for children 18 and under.
The district will hand out breakfast and lunch together each weekday to children, regardless of if they are typically free, reduced or full pay, and whether they are FSSD students. No identification is required.
USDA does require children to be present to receive the meals, which will come packaged together in one daily stop.
The drive-through program will be set up in two locations:
Poplar Grove School from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Cars should enter at the 2959 Del Rio Pike driveway and follow signs to the back of the building.
Liberty Elementary School from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., 600 Liberty Pike.
For those who are unable to drive through the two locations, meals will also be delivered to select locations in the district Monday-Friday until school reopens. Again, per USDA requirements, children will need to be present to accept the meals.
Delivery times and locations are as follows:
East Franklin
