APS Identifies Schools for Student Meal Pick-Ups

Grab & Go meals will be provided to students during three-week school closure.


  • On Thursday, April 9, APS will provide four meals (two breakfasts and two lunches) because Grab & Go meal sites will be closed Friday, April 10 for the Vernal Holiday.
  • Beginning the week of April 13, APS will reduce the days and times of meal distribution:
    • Hours of Operation beginning April 13: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday only.
    • Students will receive meals for two days.
  • APS requests that you do not bring animals to the Grab & Go sites, including in your cars.

In response to the community coronavirus threat, and in an effort to minimize social interactions to prevent the spread of the illness, Grab & Go meals will be available to all school-age students during the closure.
