Zanesville City School District continuing food distribution for students each Friday

COVID-19 Local News

ZANEVILLE – Last week, the delivery was held on Thursday because of Good Friday but the weekly food sharing is now back to being on Friday. The students can now pick up a set of five breakfast meals as well as five lunch meals with each collection.

“We have given out last week 2,100 meals and now, when I say that, it’s 2100 packages that contain five breakfast and five lunches so it’s really ten meals in that package,” Zanesville High School Asst. Superintendent Steve Foreman said.

Although the school’s doors are closed, many students need these breakfast and lunch meals just as much if school was in session.

“One of the things that we do are we are a CEP district which means that we apply because of our high economic need to do all free lunches and all free breakfasts in our school. So, we don’t charge in our cafeterias for lunch or our breakfast. That would tell you right there that the need is high,” Foreman said.

The drop-offs resume on Friday from 11 to 12:30 at both Zanesville High and Middle School as well as John McIntire Elementary and Zane Grey Intermediate and Elementary schools.
