The distribution sites include these elementary schools: Church Street, Edmonds, Fountain, Huie, Jackson, King, Lake Ridge, Lee Street, Pointe South, Tara and West Clayton. Eddie White Academy also is a distribution site.
Middle Schools include Kendrick, Morrow, Rex Mill and North Clayton while participating high schools include Mt. Zion, Munday’s Mill, Lovejoy and Riverdale.
On March 27, the district and the Atlanta Community Food Bank will provide groceries to families of the school system every Friday at Huie, King, Tara and West Clayton elementary schools and at Lovejoy High School.
"We've partnered with Clayton County Public Schools, and more, to deliver food to school sites for families and children in need," Kyle Waide, President and CEO of Atlanta Community Food Bank, said in an email.
"This food will supplement the food the school districts are already distributing to kids through the cafeterias they have opened during this crisis," he said. "In addition to these distributions, you can find a food bank or pantry closest to you by visiting our website: www.acfb.org. It's important now more than ever to support our community, especially during this time of uncertainty."
The district and the food bank are seeking volunteers to help package the food every Thursday at 8 a.m. and to distribute the food each Friday at 8 a.m. Those interested are asked to reach out to the district via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
