City of Seattle will distribute meals to children at nearly 50 sites across the city starting Monday, September 12

Seattle, WA – Starting Monday, September 12, the City of Seattle will distribute meals for students daily while the start to the school year remains delayed.

The City of Seattle is partnering with PTSAs and community groups across the city to sign up volunteers to hand out meals prepared by the Seattle Public Schools’ culinary services team. The City previously announced that it would open eight recreation drop-in sites for school-age students starting Monday.

“As we continue to support Seattle kids and families, our City administration, departments, and staff will partner with parents and community groups to distribute lunches and connect youth with the food, safety, and stability they need to be healthy and to thrive,” said Mayor Bruce Harrell.
