Meal Distribution Information

January 12, 2021

Dear Hamden Families:

As we prepare for our students to return from distance learning, we would like notify our Hamden families of updates to our free meal distribution program.

  •  On Thursday 1/14/2021 we will be serving 5 days worth of meals to children 18 and under at our 9 pickup locations from 9-12. There will be NO public meal pick-ups on Friday 1/15/2021
  •  If your children currently have their meals delivered to them via our mobile meal service but will be returning to hybrid learning on 1/19/2021, please email Randall Mel at rmel@hamden.org to be removed from the mobile distribution list as this service will continue only for our full distance learners.

Changes upon return to the Hybrid Model:

  • If your children will remain on full distance learning and you would like for their meals to be delivered, please email Kiara Morales at moralesk@whitsons.com.
  • We will offer 7-day meal pack outs at Hamden High School twice per (usually Monday and Thursday) from 3PM-6PM in front of the Auditorium entrance. 
  • During Dismissal on the last day of each week, all schools will offer weekend meals to all students.
  • Meals service in the building will resume as it was prior to Distance learning.

For Refunds from your MySchoolBucks Account please email Sarah Hackett.
