WESTFIELD – Food Services at the Westfield Public Schools will continue to offer free hot Grab and Go meals for students during remote weeks, and has posted the schedule for Jan. 19 to Jan. 29.
Rachel Kania, director of food services said the only change is that Westfield Technical Academy will no longer be offering grab and go meals.
During remote learning days through Jan. 29, all of the schools except for WTA will be giving out bagged meals of one breakfast and one lunch during the times listed on the schedule below. Children don’t have to be present to pick up the meals, and families may go to any of the schools during the listed hours – they don’t have to go to their child’s school. No identification will be required.
Night time meals, available at Westfield Intermediate School and Westfield Middle School during remote learning days, will be served cold and will need to be reheated. All food should be refrigerated immediately and disposed of after five days.
Kania said food services will stick to the menus on the website and on their Facebook page at Westfield EATS.
Kania said to date, since the first COVID closure in March, Food Services has served over 300,000 meals. “The staff have done a phenomenal job, I couldn’t ask for anything more,” Kania said, adding, “We’re happy to do it.”
