Student Meal Distribution Sites

Shelby County Schools is expanding its partnership with the YMCA of Memphis & the Mid-South to eliminate child hunger this summer. The YMCA has distributed hundreds of thousands of meals at sites across Shelby County since schools closed in early March. Now, the District's Central Nutrition Center has reopened with new and strengthened safety procedures to help reach a new goal of serving 60,000 meals per day to local children this summer.

The YMCA will continue providing free meals at all of the current community meals sites throughout the summer. However, in the absence of traditional summer camps and programs due to COVID-19, the YMCA and SCS are counting on the community’s help to reach more children through the District's Summer Food Service Program.

The Summer Food Service Program, which begins July 1, allows local churches, childcare providers and youth organizations to sign up to become a meal distribution site for children in their own communities.

SCS Bulk Meal Sites for Students

Every Wednesday in July, SCS will be serving meals for children under the age of 18 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the following school locations. Each parent will receive six breakfasts and six lunches. Fresh produce boxes from Palazola Produce Company and dairy boxes from Turner Dairy will also be provided while supplies last. Parents must provide the child's date of birth and school name if he/she attends school.
