Grab and Go Student Meals on Wheels

Grab and Go Meals have limited services.

School buses are no longer delivering Grab and Go meals. Meals are still being served at all 9 schools and only 7 participating centers in the community. Please look for the table positioned in front of these locations (inside or outside) where you can receive your Grab and Go meal. Additionally, we are operating a few routes through the community where meals will be delivered by our partner, Touchette Regional Hospital. Please look for the Touchette minivan instead of the school bus to receive your meal along these routes.
