Student Meals

Student Meal Distribution Sites

The YMCA is distributing FREE student meals at dozens of sites across Shelby County. The YMCA is providing all of the food and coordinating the distribution with its own staff members. The YMCA is a valued partner, and the District is extremely appreciative for this support in such a time of urgent need. Meals are available M-F while schools are closed, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m., for all children 18 and under. The child must be present to receive a meal.

The Mid-South Food Bank is also making meals available for students at all of its mobile food pantries in the Memphis area. Families must bring an official form of ID that includes residence (ex. driver’s license or utility bill). Hours and locations can be found here. The Mid-South Food Bank is in need of volunteers and donations to help support this effort. Get info on how to help.

Former Grizzlies star Zack Randolph has donated $10,000 to provide a new mobile food pantry at the SCS Board of Education! Thanks to this generous donation, the mobile pantry will be set up in the Board of Education parking lot from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. every Wednesday in April (April 8, 15, 22 & 29). Families can drive through for a 14-day food supply pack while supplies last. Check out our thank you message to Z-Bo here.
