Summer Feeding Program at Taku

As of May 21, ASD will transition to its Summer Feeding program, which will require us to modify our current service. We will be closing several school feeding sites in Eagle River and Girdwood, largely because they do not have a high enough percentage of students who qualify for the free and reduced meal program. Meeting this criteria is essential for ASD to be able to provide free meals, as it relates to funding from the Federal Government.  Without such funding, ASD cannot provide this valuable service. 

 

Additionally, all mobile and fixed feeding sites will be closed on May 22 to allow ASD to conduct Federally-mandated training of its foodservice workers. Service at remaining sites will continue on May 26.  Families picking up food on Thursday, May 21 will be able to pick up two days of food (Thursday & Friday).  Unfortunately, due to food storage limitations, ASD is not able to provide meals for May 23, 24, 25.  Weekend meal service will continue again on May 29, where students can pick up meals for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

 

Pick-up hours continue to be from 10AM-2PM.

    • Chugiak
