Dear Parents and Guardians:

To ensure children have continued access to nutritious meals during the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended the nationwide waiver allowing school food service sites to offer free meals. All students, regardless of a family’s financial means, will be offered free meals. These meals are available to all students in Pittsfield, including students enrolled in the Pittsfield Public Virtual Academy.

There are two types of pickups offered:

1. PPS is providing twice a week evening pickups for multiple days of meals. Families can pick up meals at two locations:

Conte Community School Mondays and Thursdays 4-6pm
Morningside Community School Mondays and Thursdays 4-6pm

Multiple days of meals will be handed out including a ½ gallon of milk on each pick up day. In order to ensure enough meals are available, pre-ordering is required. The link to pre-order is available here or through the front page of the district website:

On Mondays meals for Tues, Wed, & Thurs are distributed. On Thursday meals for Fri, Sat, Sun & Mon will be available.
