Clayton Schools to continue offering meals during the summer 

Clayton County Schools will continue to provide meals for students this summer, though the number of distribution sites has been slimmed down. 

The district said its summer “grab-n-go” meals will be available now through July 24 at 13 Clayton schools. The free meals, which will be distributed from 9 a.m.-noon Monday-Friday, are available to people 18 years old and younger as well as those with state-identified mental or physical disabilities. 

The news comes as food drives continue to grow as the nation grapples with its highest unemployment in decades. The Atlanta Community Food Bank will continue its partnership with the school system to provide groceries to Clayton residents from 9 a.m. to noon beginning Friday and continuing through July 24, the district said.

Groceries from the food bank will be distributed on Fridays only at Huie Elementary, Tara Elementary, West Clayton Elementary, Riverdale Middle and Lovejoy High schools.

The district’s “grab-n-go” meals can be picked up at these schools: Church Street Elementary, Huie Elementary, Lee Street Elementary, Pointe South Elementary, Tara Elementary, West Clayton Elementary, Kendrick Middle, Morrow Middle, Rex Mill Middle, Riverdale Middle, Forest Park High, Lovejoy High and Mundy’s Mill High.
